BRAZZAVILLE, 3 February 2009 (IRIN) – A vaccination campaign has been launched to target indigenous communities in Enyelle District, Likouala Department, northern Republic of Congo (ROC), an NGO source has said.

The indigenous communities, sometimes called pygmies, often lack access to basic social services.

“The action that we are going to be carrying out in the forests of Enyelle will help remote populations in their environment,” said Rino Martinez, head of the Italian NGO Ali Per Volare, which will be conducting the campaign.
