Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is assisting the Bangladesh Ministry of Health’s Routine EPI program in Kamrangirchar where we administer vaccinations to children on a regular basis.
We provide BCG, Penta, and MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) vaccinations as part of this program. We have five vaccines in Penta, and three vaccines in total in MMR. These vaccines are provided by the Ministry of Health and are available at our facilities. We have Ministry of Health-trained nurses on staff who vaccinate children from the age of seven days to one and a half years.
In the video below, Mohamed Abu Taher, Project Coordinator in Kamranghirchar, Bangladesh speaks about the importance of vaccination, MSF’s work on immunization and why it is needed in this area of Bangladesh.
