This image depicted Nigerian Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) resident, Dr. Wada Imam Bello, making his way bare footed across a stream, as he was in the process of carrying oral polio vaccine (OPV), in an effort to reach what are referred to as the unreachable nomads in the Fulani communities inhabiting the Sabon Layi Ward, of the Local Government Area (LGA) of Faskari, in Katsina State, Nigeria, in August 2012. This endeavor was part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Nomadic Mission. 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.
