This image depicted Nigerian Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) resident, Dr. Wada Imam Bello, as he was vaccinating a zero-dose child with a dose of the oral polio vaccine (OPV), during the CDC Polio Fulani Nomadic Mission. The Fulani are the dominant nomadic tribe in northern Nigeria. This picture was captured in the Local Government Area (LGA) of Faskari, in Katsina state, Nigeria, August 2012. Dr. Bello located the nomads using a global positioning system (GPS)-guided device, then went into the field to administer the OPVs. The man next to Dr. Bello, was Mr. Kore Miyetti-Allah, Chairman of the Faskari LGA. 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.
