Description: Caption:
Captured during the 2015 Polio Vaccination Campaign, this image depicts a healthcare field technician in the subdivision of Tehsil Fateh Jang, located in the Attock District of the Punjab province of Pakistan, who was in the process of marking the finger of a 2-year-old child that had just received a polio vaccination, as the boy was supported by his comforting mother. Dr. Perdeep Kumar, a Pakistan Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) alumnus, and a National Stop Transmission of Polio Program (STOP) officer led the vaccination campaign to a displaced population along the region’s Stadium Road. The FETP trains workers on the ground to help countries build sustainable capacity for detecting and responding to health threats. The program develops in-country expertise, so that disease outbreaks can be detected locally, and prevented from spreading.
