Seems that the sentence is correct and hence 1(A) is the answer.
3 does come close enought, but I'd go with the 'just as polio vaccine..., dietary changes are needed...' construction.

we are talking of similar actions with intended 'similar' results. Just as Polio vaccine given (action 1) ... mass dietary change is needed (supposed - action 2).

I need to get more details on Just as ...so, anyway, here it won't make a logical sentence. "Just as polio vaccine is given.... so mass change is required..."
