Captured on November 5, 2014, during a supplementary polio immunization campaign in Wajir Bor, Kenya, Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) resident, Samuel Juma, was shown here, giving water to a thirsty young child, before administering the child’s oral polio vaccination (OPV). Access to drinking water is a major problem in this area, and this child had traveled for a long distance with his mother without any water. 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.
