Despite Challenges, CDC, Other Global Health Agencies Administer Childhood Immunizations In Effort To Eradicate Polio In Nigeria

CDC’s “Our Global Voices”: CDC Maintains Vigilance to Eradicate Polio in Northern Nigeria
Chimeremma Denis Nnadi, an epidemiologist in the Polio Eradication Branch of the CDC’s Global Immunization Division, discusses his work with the Global Immunization team in Nigeria, which “is closer than ever to eradicating polio.” Nnadi notes the challenges that remain in vaccinating children who reside in hard-to-reach areas, concluding, “I know that, together with other global health and humanitarian agencies, we will continue finding ways to reach and vaccinate children in conflict-affected regions and elsewhere until polio is eradicated” (2/24).
