On the brink of extinction, One man pushes to strip Polio from one of its last strongholds.
Polio, a disease that has left millions of children paralyzed, is on the verge of facing its extinction. However there are still a few places on Earth where we have yet to eliminate it. But today possibly marks the beginning of the end for polio’s hold over Nigeria. For Nigeria’s minister of state for health Muhammad Ali Pate aims to accomplish what has been failed time and time again for the past 25 years. To completely eradicate Polio from the country, and he is doing everything in his power to achieve this goal. From persuading boys on the streets of Kaduna North, to personally vaccinating kids in a nomadic community near the side of the road, Muhammad is determined. As he puts it ” There is science to polio eradication, But making it happen is art”
