Polio Reporting

March 2013

A two-day capacity building workshop was conducted at Nagata Radio in Kaduna March 2nd & 3rd for project stringers and other health program producers from various local media organizations.  The aim was to train them on how to report polio in Northern Nigeria under threats and other security challenges.  Participants were first given tips on how to eradicate polio through educative programming, stories and reports.  They were also taught how to use modern digital equipment for safe and remote shooting, recording and editing while filing their polio reports – using their own iPhones and the HD1 voice recorders supplied through the project.
