The Ministry of Health (MINSA) will implement vaccination posts in border areas of the country as part of preventative measures to reduce the risk of measles transmission in the population.
The intervention is considered in the technical document Implementation plan for vaccination posts in border zones, approved by Ministerial Resolution No. 799-2018 / Minsa.
The standard establishes that the general management of strategic interventions in public health of the Minsa will carry out the distribution, supervision and evaluation of the implementation of the plan.
Measles can be easily prevented by vaccination because it is effective and safe. Moreover, this immunologically preventable disease falls within the national vaccination scheme of the Minsa.
The portfolio intensified the works of prevention and control in the Tumbes border with Huaquillas (Ecuador).
