In 2012 Ewen Callaway travelled to Northern Nigeria to learn more about the global polio eradication effort. We join him on the search to find one of the virus' last remaining strongholds in remote nomadic communities that the vaccines couldn't reach.

Most people in Europe follow expert advice on immunisation but, because some opt out of vaccination, outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases persist.
Health authorities and doctors are working to improve how they communicate about immunisation but, according to Robb Butler, WHO Regional Office for Europe, listening is the first step in engaging with the public.
In addition, immunisation should be made as convenient as possible, available in a time and place that suits parents.

Twenty percent of all the babies born in the world each year—the equivalent of nearly five times the children born yearly in the United States—are not getting the basic vaccines they need to be protected from killer diseases, such as measles. And that’s why Venetia Dearden traveled to West African nation of Mali with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) to see firsthand the importance of vaccines to families and the lengths to which they must go to get them. When MSF teams stage vaccination campaigns in the West African nation of Mali, mothers will come from hours away, sometimes days away. In the first year of their life, children must receive vaccines five separate times. In certain parts of the world, it can be extremely difficult for children and their caregivers to come so often if they live far away from a vaccination point or can't afford the cost of transportation. As in many other countries, these women, who are overwhelmingly the stewards of their families when it comes to health issues, want the protection vaccines can provide them and their children against several potentially deadly diseases that plague the region. In the best-case scenario, MSF and other agencies would bring the vaccines to them, wherever they lived, in whatever conditions. But this isn’t possible at present, because many of the vaccines available today are not tailored for the difficult environments in which they must be used. To give but one example: establishing and sustaining cold chain is very difficult in places where electricity is hard to come by, to say nothing of ice. That’s why MSF has been advocating for a global approach to vaccine development and dissemination that takes into account the conditions in the countries where these vaccines are most needed to half preventable deaths, as well as the particular strains of diseases found in various locations. Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), VII Photo, and UNION HZ present FATAL NEGLECT, a six-part documentary film project, that tells the stories of millions of patients left behind by the global health revolution. In Fatal Neglect: The Global Health Revolution’s Forgotten Patients, VII photographers Seamus Murphy, Venetia Dearden, Ron Haviv, and John Stanmeyer document the impact of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, the three deadliest neglected tropical diseases—(visceral leishmaniasis (kala azar), Human African Trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness), and Chagas—and vaccine-preventable diseases. The award-winning photojournalists traveled to Mali, Paraguay, South Sudan, and Tajikistan to capture the stories of frontline health workers trying to fight diseases that affect millions of people and kill hundreds of thousands each year yet garner little attention from drug developers, policy makers, or the mass media.

Development of an affordable, effective vaccine against meningitis A is a milestone in public health. The new vaccine, the result of a partnership between PATH and the World Health Organization called the Meningitis Vaccine Project, has the potential to stop a disease that regularly kills or disables thousands in Africa. Now, we must make sure that those who need the vaccine get it.

Public Health Wales, in collaboration with Cardiff University, The Meningitis Trust, Practical Media and Meningitis UK, have produced a DVD called 'Meningitis - Know the Signs' which was distributed free to all secondary schools and further education colleges in Wales.
In this DVD, medical student Laura Vines - who lost a close friend to meningitis - tells you how to recognise the signs of meningitits and what to do if you think you or someone else could be at risk from this potentially fatal disease.

West Africa is currently fighting the largest Ebola outbreak in history. What does it take to fight the deadly disease?
As many Ebola treatment centres fill to capacity, family members forced to look after their ill relatives are becoming exposed to the disease. Household protection kits allow family caregivers to look after Ebola sufferers as safely as possible. Each kit contains protective gowns, gloves and masks, as well as soap, chlorine and a sprayer, along with instructions on the use and safe disposal of materials. In Liberia, one of the hardest-hit countries, UNICEF’s partners, in co-ordination with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), are distributing kits to the five counties with the highest rates of the disease.
For more information on the kits, visit: http://www.unicef.org/media/media_76030.html.

Dr Brendan Nyhan, Dartmouth College, discusses the risks of trying to correct unscientific beliefs about vaccines.
According to research published in the Pediatrics medical journal by Dr Nyhan and his colleagues, there is little evidence to show that debunking myths makes people more likely to vaccinate.
In fact, some strategies designed to correct myths are actually counterproductive.
