This photograph was taken September 20, 2012, during the monitoring and evaluation of the Immunization Plus Days (IPDs) in the Zamfara state of Nigeria. Special teams of Nigerian Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) residents, were assigned to newly enumerated nomadic settlements, like the one depicted here. Residents would enter households containing cows, chickens, goats, ducks and humans. The FETP resident shown in this photograph, was marking this dwelling, on the wall outside its entranceway, having concluded his investigation, and administration of any requisite vaccinations. 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.
