“We always manage to get here, but sometimes it’s easier than others. In the rainy season, I might have to wade with my bicycle over my shoulders and the cold box [containing vaccines] under my arm.” “Today we have two children to vaccinate with their first dose of diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis or whooping cough (DTP). I’m also going to follow up some children who haven’t been immunized against measles.” - Jina Kiaku Mianfipa - nurse, DRC

By 2011, India went from having the highest number of polio cases in the world to eliminating the disease completely. Millions of frontline health workers successfully vaccinated more than a hundred million children in homes, health clinics and even in train stations. Every vaccinator was a hero for helping to get rid of polio from the second most populous country in the world, a role that continues today with the use of inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) which keeps the virus at bay

It took a near tragedy to change Yusuf’s mind to accept immunization. He will never forget the day his first-born daughter Saratu, then two, became dangerously ill from pneumonia - which can be prevented by vaccination.
She survived and a decade later Yusuf is an advocate in his own community. “I looked at my little girl and I knew what was going to happen. When I was a young man I saw plenty of children die. I knew how they looked, and it was my little girl that looked that way now. Now if a man’s wife has just had a child, I go and speak to him and tell him why they need to have a vaccine. And they believe me because I am one of them. We work the same jobs, we are from the same villages, and they see that all of my children have been vaccinated.” – Yusuf, father and community immunization advocate, Nigeria.

Look at a typical photo of an immunization clinic and you will notice mothers in almost every single one. To reach as many children as possible, programmes must be deliberately designed to involve men as well as women, to help all parents and caregivers access immunization services. Both parents should feel responsible for their children’s health, and not reinforce existing gender roles.
