STORYLINE:

Health authorities in Malawi are currently responding to the wild poliovirus type 1 outbreak after a single case was detected in Lilongwe district. The vaccination campaign, targeting children under-5-years old, began on Monday (23 March) and is ongoing. Vaccinators have spread out across the country, including outside of Malawi’s cities, to reach potentially vulnerable children.

More than 80 million doses will be administered to more than 23 million children under 5 years in the four-round vaccination drive in five southern African countries after Malawi declared an outbreak on 17 February—the first such case in the country in 30 years, and the first in Africa since the region was certified free of indigenous wild poliovirus in 2020.

The first phase of the campaigns targets children in Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia. Three subsequent rounds—in which Zimbabwe will also take part—are set for April, June and July and aim to reach almost 23 million children with more than 80 million doses of the bivalent Oral Polio Vaccine recommended by World Health Organization (WHO) for wild poliovirus (type 1).
