French/Nat Back in 1988, the World Health Organisation set a goal of eradicating polio globally by the year 2000. But although the number of sufferers has dropped dramatically on the African continent, a few countries - mainly those fighting wars - continue to be affected by the disease. APTN joined an immunisation team on a journey to remote pygmy communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where polio still cripples many people. The remote province of Equateur, 100 kilometres (65 miles) from the battle front between government and rebel forces. Villages are so isolated, they are accessible only by boat. For the World Health Organisation's polio immunisation team, travel is a slow process. Even in a motorised boat, a journey of 100 kilometres (65 miles) can take seven hours. But in the war against polio, every child has to be targeted. Before the civil war, people in these remote communities had little access to medical facilities. And now fighting between government forces and rebel soldiers has only served to further isolate them. Up until August, the W-H-O immunisation teams had been unable to reach these areas. But as a result of cooperation with the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo, medical teams have now managed to gain access. The arrival of the immunisation teams is a major event for the villagers and is accompanied by beating of drums, singing and dancing. This is a traditional village call, and in this case, it is designed to alert all women with young children to the team's arrival. Within these villages are large numbers of pygmies forest hunters who live in the remotest parts of Africa. The W-H-O eradication programme, which is financed by several organisations and governments, aims to wipe out polio by the end of the year 2000. Since the launch of Nelson Mandela's "Kick Polio out of Africa" campaign in 1996, the number of those affected by the disease has decreased dramatically on the continent. But the disease is still prevalent in Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia and Nigeria, with at least 695 cases reported in 1998. All the more reason for the W-H-O to remain committed to meeting its deadline. But civil war and the resulting lack of infrastructure have served to increase the cost of the immunisation programmes. The W-H-O estimates it needs a further 117 (M) million U-S dollars to ensure the goal is realised. At times, it is an uphill task - so remote are these pygmy communities that many villagers know very little about the disease. SOUNDBITE: (Lingala) "I would like my daughter to have a vaccine, but I don't understand what polio means. Please tell me more about it." SUPER CAPTION: Bolunde Maria, mother To ensure polio is completely wiped out, medical teams need to inoculate children three times between birth and the age of five. Since August, the W-H-O has carried out two waves of immunisation in the Democratic Republic of Congo, targeting 80 percent of children within the designated age range. In October, eradication teams plan to carry out the third programme. It's vital that as many children as possible are immunised - even just a handful of cases of polio can result in the disease taking a foothold. SOUNDBITE: (French) "This year in our health zone we have got about six-thousand children, which as you know is already a problem, but if we even have four or five thousand cases that's still a health hazard." SUPER CAPTION: Dr Aime Loango, World Health Organisation Outbreaks in one country can result in the disease spreading back into countries which have just about become polio-free.

Eng/French/Nat French and United Nations planes, carrying medical and military aid, began arriving in Brazzaville on Tuesday. Hundreds of people have been injured during the Republic of Congo's four-month civil war. A French soldier guarding the French Embassy was shot twice in the leg overnight - the majority of men on the streets of Brazzaville are armed. Sassou-Nguesso's militia on Tuesday travelled around the city collecting weapons from members of the population. A plane carrying urgently needed medical and military aid lands at Brazzaville's airport. A team of 38 French medical workers arrived early on Tuesday. They will stay in the city for at least two weeks and will set up a 40-bed hospital. The team said the mission was the first of its kind they had undertaken. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We don't know - it's the first time that a French unit of civil security has the sort of mission in a conflict. In other times we are used to working on earthquakes." SUPER CAPTION: French aid team member The men said their duty was to bring aid to the people of Brazzaville because local facilities had been destroyed. SOUNDBITE: (French) "Our mission is essentially to bring medical and humanitarian aid. We're here to help the injured and there's no doubt a lot of them who can't be helped locally because facilities are completely destroyed." SUPER CAPTION: French aid team member The French will work with a United Nations team to evaluate humanitarian needs after consulting with government officials. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The main task that we have to perform is to try to find out what are the essential needs of people in terms of survival." SUPER CAPTION: Eric Laroche, UN team leader Planes carrying 30 tons of equipment are due in the coming days. Armed men account for the majority of people in the streets of Brazzaville, which was virtually destroyed by the civil war's fierce shelling and gunfire. A French soldier guarding the French Embassy was shot twice in the leg over Monday night, and three French citizens were reported detained in Pointe Noire, by General Denis Sassou-Nguesso's forces. On Tuesday Sassou-Nguesso's militia travelled around the city collecting arms from members of the population. SOUNDBITE: (French) "We need time to find them (the weapons) - the places where they could have hidden the arms, and collect them and get them over to our side." SUPER CAPTION: Nbeka Wilfred Bayard, Military Commander Sassou-Nguesso ruled this central African country as a military dictator from 1979-1991. Demands for democratic reforms and economic improvements led to the first multiparty elections in 1992, which Lissouba won. The two men had been scheduled to face each other again in July elections, but fighting between their militias erupted June 5 and the vote never took place.
