Massive yellow fever campaign in Angola
It was one of the largest mass vaccination campaigns against yellow fever ever attempted in Africa: Red Cross volunteers fanned out across Angola and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to aid in the response. Since the first confirmed reports of yellow fever in Angola in January 2016, mass vaccination campaigns have now covered most of the affected areas. The volunteers vaccinated people and explained the importance of the vaccinations and how families can protect themselves from the mosquito-borne disease. One recent campaign targeted 3 million people in 18 districts.
