    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, OCTOBER 20 - A total of 1.2 million doses of polio vaccines have been provided to the Lebanese Ministry of Public Health thanks to European Union funding and with the support of Unhcr.

    This initiative, according to the Enpi website (www.enpi-info.eu) comes in the framework of the National Polio Immunization Campaign launched by the Ministry of Public Health, in collaboration with Unicef Lebanon and the World Health Organization Lebanon Office. The campaign stands as a crucial national response to the outbreak of polio in the region.
