One Last Push? Why?

Polio is history for many of us. The disease which paralysed generations is now on the run and only survives in hard-to-reach places. Even so, it’s still hanging on, infecting children. So today we’re in a race to get to them before the virus does. Watch this video to see the incredible efforts volunteers and health workers are making in order to do this.

So very close.

The good news is we’re very close to making polio history everywhere in the world. Volunteers and health workers are doing everything they can to get the vaccine through to everyone they can. We must not lose momentum to wipe it out completely.
