Khadijad is 2 years old and lives with her father in the village of Ajingi, Nigeria.


Like many parents in this area, her father was reluctant at first to have his child vaccinated.


The Health Commissioner for Kano State personally visited their home and many others to inform and to encourage parents to comply.


SOUNDBITE (English) Hajiya A'isha Kiru, Health Commissioner Kano State,
"It's a matter of persuasion. Those that vaccinate will have to have the skills of persuasion."


After learning that the vaccine could save Khadijad's life, her father allowed his daughter to be immunized.


In a massive UNICEF supported campaign, more than 45 million children under 5 were immunized against polio in Nigeria over the course of 4 days.


To goal is to reach 85 million children in total and to eradicate the disease from the nation.


SOUNDBITE (English) Hajiya A'isha Kiru, Health Commissioner Kano State
"We have to continue what we are doing and do even more to be able to maintain the success and spend at least three years without having even one child come down with the polio virus."


Trained teams were equipped with special ice carriers to keep the vaccines cool in the high temperatures. This enabled them to reach remote areas of the country.


As well as fixed immunization posts, thousands of vaccination teams went house to house and also visited public places, such as churches, mosques and markets.


Records were taken of the vaccinated children and their fingernails and homes were marked.


A major part of the strategy is to encourage traditional leaders to become involved in the process.


SOUNDBITE (English) Alh. Wada Mohamed Aliya, District Head Ajingi Local Government Area.
"We also have to be ready to double our efforts to work together hand in hand and maintain and retain our acheivements."


Nigeria is making steady progress towards eradicating polio. But the key is a continued strong routine immunization regime.


Now for children like Khadijab there is hope for a healthy future.
