The DRC is a country which is recording the resurgence and co-circulation of cases of polio variant viruses types 1 -2 -3. The most affected provinces are among those which contain a high number of zero doses and under-vaccinated children and are crossed by the river and or contain island localities.

In the Haut-Lomami province, for example, the majority of cases of variant polio viruses are in Health Zones which have localities on islets or along the Congo River.

Although the province is the one that has recorded the best survey vaccination coverage over the past two years, it is the one that has the greatest number of cases of variant polio viruses across all trends. This is explained by the existence of groups of children chronically missed by routine vaccination and additional vaccination activities, who live in places whose consideration for vaccination activities has been limited or difficult (islets on the lakes, along the river and rivers).
