People are the Polio problem. Due to a rumor, Polio infection has gone from 6 localized places to having hundreds of children paralyzed. Local leaders in northern Nigeria had begun doubting the efforts of vaccinators stating, “that the vaccine contained HIV and anti-fertility agents.” (Prompt) As soon as the local news caught wind it was all downhill from there, and within a few short months, the polio campaign effort was halted. On top of this, the struggle to finally banish Polio is compounded by the major presence of Islamic insurgency groups that attack the relief efforts compounds, and hospitals daily. This hostile Nigerian environment and mistrust lead to a world-altering outbreak for the many in Nigeria.
