This photograph depicted Pakistani soldiers, and children posing for a quick snapshot during a Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) endeavor, to administer oral polio vaccine (OPV) to unvaccinated children, in the union council locality of Kharotabad, Balochistan, Pakistan, during the July 2011, polio campaign. In this view, you can see that the two soldiers were armed with automatic rifles, while standing alongside the children, and behind the group was the region’s mountainous terrain.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.
