In Yemen, more than 306,000 people, including over 164,000 children under the age of 15, were vaccinated against cholera as part of a joint WHO-UNICEF campaign. 

An official statement said on Saturday that the number was expected to go up as reports of the final day of the campaign comes in. 

The six-day vaccination effort, carried out by 3,000 health workers in three districts in Hudaydah and Ibb, was made possible by a pause in fighting, known as 'Days of Tranquility', agreed by parties to the conflict.

UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore said that the 
success of this vaccination campaign shows what can be collectively achieve for children and families in Yemen when the fighting stops and humanitarian access opens up. 

Only a comprehensive political resolution to the conflict can secure the wellbeing of children across the country over the long term, the Director said.
