Supporting nationwide Pulse Polio Programme


Heads of departments of Pediatrics and Community Medicine and faculty of community medicine, interns and health care workers administered oral polio vaccine to children below five years of age at PESIMSR Hospital. As a follow up health workers went house to house in PESIMSR campus and attended to children who had missed taking the drops. The program was conducted at PESIMSR hospital, rural health training center (RHTC) and urban health training center (UHTC). The drive supporting nationwide programme for eradication of polio was conducted on Jan 19-20, 2020.
