Pulse Polio Treatment Camp

Pulse Polio Treatment in the eradication of polio from India as undertaken by the Government of India has come to be appreciated by the common people, especially the parents of small children who have displayed their eagerness to obtain preventive treatment. WESWA gave the impetus and the Viralimalai Base Hospital promoted the campaign through WESWA.

Mrs. Padma, Banu and Rani were given intensive training by the medical authorities of the Base Hospital. With each successive year this campaign has grown and maximised the participation. The photos here are from the campaign conducted in 1998 and 1999. WESWA will carry on with this campaign together with local public health authorities for years to come.
