Description:Caption:
Captured in the Local Government Area (LGA) of Bagwai, in the Kano State of northern Nigeria, January, 2013, this image depicts Nigerian Field Epidemiology Training Program (NFETP) resident, Dr. Binta Bako Sule, in the process of administering the oral polio vaccine (OPV) to a previously missed child, during a National-Stop Transmission of Polio (N-STOP) posting for the National Supplemental Immunization Activity in this region.
Additional Information:
The N-STOP program is a refined and specialized offspring of two larger programs that train disease detectives: the (international) STOP program, and the Nigeria Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program. N-STOP is a key element in Nigeria’s effort to rid the country of this crippling disease.
