Description
A young man in Somalia could be the last victim of one of the most devastating diseases in human history - SMALLPOX. To ensure that he is the last, 20,000 people in the town of Merka must be vaccinated in a week’s time. The World Health Organization launched its smallpox zero campaign a dozen years ago. Step by step, it has traced and eradicated the disease to one country - one town – and hopefully one man.
