The national Vitamin A-plus campaign is underway across Bangladesh, aiming to feed capsules to 21 million children aged between six to 59 months.

Children aged between six and 11 months will be fed one blue colour Vitamin A capsule, while those aged between 12 and 59 months the red coloured ones, from 8am to 4pm on Saturday.

They will be given Vitamin A capsule at some 120,000 permanent and 20,000 mobile health centres across Bangladesh.

Mobile health centres have been set up at bus stands, railway stations, launch terminals, airports, ferry terminals, bridge toll centres and kheya ghats which will remain open from 8am to 4pm to make sure that all children are fed the capsules.

The children of the remote areas under 240 unions in 42 upazilas of 12 districts will be fed the capsules in the next four days of the campaign day through a search program.

Additionally, to make the campaign success, a total 280,000 volunteers have been trained. Control room will be opened in every upazila, district and all centres on the day for monitoring the campaign.

The campaign in Gazipur City Corporation will be observed in January 25 instead on January 11 for Biswa Ijtema.
