Aid agencies are planning to immunise three million people in central Africa after a polio outbreak, which has killed more than 100 people.
Hundreds more have been paralysed by the disease, authorities have said.
The disease broke out in Congo-Brazzaville, but has also affected parts of neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola.
The government said the vast majority of deaths had occurred in the city of Pointe-Noire in Congo-Brazzaville.
