HOW CAN I PROTECT MY CHILDREN FROM DISEASE?
Your main concern will be to protect your children against measles, one of the most contagious diseases known and a leading cause of death among the young. Diseases can spread quickly in crowded conditions and always affect children first, especially if they are malnourished. You may find a medical team vaccinating children under 15 against measles. Children under five should also receive polio, tetanus, and diphtheria vaccinations, as well as the BCG vaccination against tuberculosis.
