World Polio Day – Friday, Oct. 23 5:30pm – CDT
Guests at the event streaming from New York City will include Global Polio Eradication Initiative partners, celebrity ambassadors, polio survivors, and others.
This update comes at an important time in the fight to eradicate polio, which would be only the second human disease to be eradicated. Case numbers of the disease have never been lower, and only two countries (Afghanistan and Pakistan) have never stopped transmission of the wild poliovirus.
Overall, remarkable progress has been achieved in the fight against polio. Since 1988, the number of polio cases has been reduced from 350,000 a year to fewer than 700 cases in 2011 and we are this close to eradicating Polio forever.
So tune in Friday in support of World Polio Day.
