Two-year old Aboubacar Sidikou used to be able to run and play with his elder brothers. Now he spends most of his time resting in the arms of his grandmother.


He is one of the 13 Nigerian children who have contracted polio this year.


SOUNDBITE (Hausa), of Aboubacar Sidikou's grand-mother, Mrs. Rahanatou Mahamane:
"At the beginning, he was shivering and we had to take him to the health centre, where he was given an injection. But the fever continued. Then he could not walk any more and he spent most of his time lying on the bed."


Like most of the children in Niger who have contracted the disease, Aboubacar-Sidikou lives near the Nigerian border where 276 cases of polio have been reported since the beginning of 2009.


The Nigerian Government, UNICEF, the World Health Organization and their partners are responding to this influx of cases with a third round of polio immunization that will target over 4.2 million children in the country.


SOUNDBITE (French), of M. Abdou Ali, Health Communicator in the district of Guidan Roumdji, region of Maradi.
"We have listed the children targeted by the polio immunization campaign in all villages located along the border. We have identified the villages in Niger and in Nigeria where immunization will be synchronized. After that we decided we should think of what we should tell the population, what are the messages that we want to share with people."


For this campaign, community mobilisers have teamed up to air sensitization programs to encourage populations on both sides of the border to immunize their children.


SOUNDBITE (Hausa), of Elhadj Adamou Nakacha:
"Each time vaccinators come to the village we do our best to encourage people to come out of their homes and have their children immunized."
