* UNICEF: Polio vaccination reaches remote villages along Niger river
* 시간: 02 min 44 secs
* 촬영도시: TILABERY DISTRICT
* 촬영국가: Niger
* 촬영일자: 27 Feb 2009


On the eve of the polio vaccination campaign, coordinator Ali Boureima sets out to distribute vaccines to 9 villages on the islands of the Niger River.


The river provides these villages with food for their families. But it can also isolate them from the benefits of modern medicine.


Not today. Ali hires a canoe to reach this village, 25 kilometers from the district center.


He delivers vaccines for the children of several villages, and also a gas cylinder to power the refrigerators that will store the drug.


SOUNDBITE, Ali Boureima (French), Vaccination coordinator:
"Last year you vaccinated 2746 children. We have increased the number of doses by 5 %, so you will have 2880 doses. The vaccine is of good quality. Look here is the date".


Ali is one of one hundred local facilitators that will join 226 vaccinator teams to ensure complete coverage of the Tilabery district.


Mahamadou Djinge is one of the traditional chiefs involved in the communication efforts.


SOUNDBITE, Mahamadou Djinge (Zarma), traditional chief:
"The association of traditional leaders and UNICEF have concerted their efforts to support the vaccination campaign, by raising awareness of its importance".


On the first day of the campaign – district officials gather in the village of Garbey Kourou, on the mainland. Last year, 5 families in this village refused vaccination.


Now a government representative promotes immunization:
SOUNDBITE, Lamin Abdumaye (French) rep of governor:
"I use this opportunity to remind you how many scary illnesses have now became history – we had smallpox, we had sleeping illnesses transmitted by tsetse flies. And how were they all eradicated? They were eradicated thanks to the coordinated efforts of the health sector and to preventive measures".


This 26 year old mother needs no convincing.
She went to school … and knows about polio.


So does her grandmother, who has seen many disabled by the disease.


The village of Sayani is where one of the 12 children who contracted polio last year lives.


Two year old Badamasi's parents missed the last immunization campaign.


Now the boy's father speaks as an advocate of immunization.


There are another 66 thousand children under five in the district to be vaccinated … and more than four million in all of Niger. The campaign has only just begun.
