Measles and Rubella are highly contagious viral infections. This infection is easily transmitted to children and quite dangerous if it affects pregnant women because of the risk of giving birth to deformed babies and increasing the risk of infant death.
In 2017 the Government of Indonesia through the Ministry of Health made a decision regarding the Measles and Rubella immunization movement (MR immunization) in August-September 2017 - 2018.The aim of this immunization is to eliminate the incidence of Measles and Rubella and prevent the incidence of congenital Rubella syndrome by 2020. This step shows that the Indonesian Government is serious about preventing the spread of this disease. This activity cannot be separated from the intervention of the World Health Organization / WHO which helps the Indonesian government to support the MR immunization campaign in achieving the goals and success of these activities. WHO assists the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia by preparing immunization and assistance needs, especially in areas that have a high risk of contracting the disease. Several technical staff from WHO came to Indonesia and were placed in various regions in Indonesia to ensure that these activities run smoothly and ensure targets are met. In addition, WHO is also tasked with ensuring that populations susceptible to infection receive this immunization. The targets of this immunization campaign are babies aged 9 years to children aged 15 years. The MR vaccine that has been circulating in Indonesia has been certified by WHO, so it is safe to use.
That is the information that I can convey, hope it helps
