* Asset Name : UNICEF: Polio campaign reaches children in Koranic schools in northern Nigeria * Shoot Date: 18 Apr 2007 Every Saturday, five-year-old Asiya helps her mother with household chores. After sweeping floors and washing clothes, she leaves home to attend Koranic school in her neighbourhood. In spite of her tender age, Asiya is expected to learn the Koran by heart – a religious tradition observed by many Muslim communities in northern Nigeria. Today, her long hours of recitation are interrupted by a team of vaccinators, who have come to immunize the children against polio and other preventable diseases. Just one year earlier, many Koranic schools would not allow the vaccinators to come and immunize the children. But this year things have changed. Soundbite (Hausa), Mallam Mohammed, Headmaster of Mallam Mohammed Koranic School: “In the past, we didn’t have a clear understanding of these issues. But now we understand everything about it, as a result of the preaching given by our religious leaders. We know that immunization is good for our children and we should cooperate.” In 2006, Nigeria reported more than 1,000 polio cases - half of the global total. For the government and its partners like UNICEF, mobilizing traditional and religious leaders has been a key strategy in the campaign to eradicate polio. To build trust in immunization, community dialogues like these are held throughout the region, involving religious leaders, traditional leaders, and Koranic school teachers. With their influence, immunization has become more openly accepted in many communities. Soundbite(Hausa), Husaina Aminu, mother of Asiya: “My name is Husaina, wife of Aminu. I allow my children to be immunized because it prevents them from getting killer diseases, such as measles, polio, and diphtheria.” During this round of the polio immunization campaign in Kaduna State, Asiya - along with 30,000 other Koranic schoolchildren - are immunized against polio. Across the region, a total of 14.5 million children are targeted against this deadly disease that doesn’t discriminate.
