In Ghor and Baghdis provinces, the Ministry of Public Health and WHO reported twenty confirmed child mortality cases due to measles and pneumonia. The outbreak is compounded by severe weather that hampers access, and low immunization and poor public health service coverage contribute to the spread of measles (WHO, 21 Feb 2012).
