Sitting outside the entrance of a nomadic dwelling, this image depicted Nigerian Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) resident, Dr. Wada Imam Bello, talking with the Fulani (the dominant nomadic tribe in northern Nigeria) community leader, and grandfather of nomadic children, who had yet to receive a polio vaccination. This scene took place in the Sabon-Lavi Ward of the Local Government Area (LGA) of Faskari, in Katsina state, Nigeria, during this September 2012 campaign to resolve vaccine non-compliance. 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.
