A massive vaccination campaign in Liberia that was suspended because of the Ebola outbreak last year was renewed as part of the effort to restore health care services in the country (http://bit.ly/1QsVC5N). In May of this year, the Liberian government declared the Ebola outbreak to be over and worked with the World Health Organization and other partners to organize a nationwide week-long campaign to vaccinate more than 600 000 children younger than 5 years against measles and polio and provide deworming medicine (http://bit.ly/1AKW4Jg).
