Targeted “mop-up” campaigns

Print PDF

Targeted "mop-up" campaigns are very high-quality immunizations campaigns carried out from house to house in localized areas in which the polio virus is suspected to still be circulating. These campaigns are carried out in areas where the virus was last recorded and where access to health care services is difficult or in areas which are densely populated with poor sanitation and low routine immunization levels.
