KUJE, Nigeria (AP) – As Nigeria strives to achieve its ambitious goal of fully immunizing 55 million of its 206 million people over the next two months, health workers in some parts of the country are taking a risk. network to reach rural people. Some of them have to move without security guards in areas besieged by violence from armed gangs who kill or kidnap people on the street. Even in areas where there is no violence, many of these workers receive very little compensation – or none at all – for weeks at a time. Dr Faisal Shuaib, head of the agency that oversees vaccination programmes, acknowledges that challenges exist due to poor planning and coordination.
