This photograph depicted Pakistani Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) 2nd cohort resident, Dr. Muhammad Dawood Kasi, as he was in the process of administering oral polio vaccine (OPV) to unvaccinated school children, in the district of Quetta, in Baluchistan, Pakistan, during the July, 2011, polio campaign. Here, you see Dr. Kasi supporting a Pakistani girls head, as he dropped the OPV into her open mouth, while the rest of the group looked on. 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.
