Vitamin A plus campaign

Problem in texture behind postponement

UNB, Kishoreganj

State Minister for Health Dr Md Murad Hossain yesterday said Vitamin-A Plus campaign has been postponed as problems have been found in the textures of the capsule.

"We've found in some packs that the red-capsules got attached to each other. But, we're collecting samples and tests will confirm whether there's any problem with its quality," he said.

Necessary steps will be taken after the tests, Hossain added.

The junior minister came up with the observation after inspecting samples of the capsule at the Circuit House in presence of the Civil Surgeon and other officials.

On Thursday, the government postponed the National Vitamin-A Plus campaign scheduled for Saturday mentioning 'unavoidable' reasons.

The campaign to feed Vitamin-A Plus capsules to all children aged from six months to 59 months was supposed to be held across the country on January 26.

Earlier, Hossain visited Kishoreganj General Hospital and Kishoreganj Maa O Shishu Kallyan Kendra and later joined a views-exchange meeting at the conference room of Sylhet Circuit House.He also warned that corruption in the health sector will be eradicated.
