Of the cases still occurring in my country of birth, Pakistan, they are predominantly found in my tribe, the Pukhtuns. While we are winning the war and extinction of this horrible disease is close, it is important for us to continue to raise awareness and assist in all efforts to vaccinate so that polio can finally be beaten for good.”


  • Lord Avebury 1928 – 2016 (Liberal Democrats)

    We were very sad to hear that Lord Avebury died on 14 February 2016. He was a lifelong supporter of humanitarian causes and we are grateful to him for his support on this campaign. This is what he had to say about polio eradication:

    “I’m delighted to be associated with the campaign to eradicate polio and I believe that we should take the opportunity to do all we can to consign this terrible disease to history.”

    “I’m delighted to lend my support to this important campaign. Cases of polio have been reduced by 99% since 1988 and the UK government should continue to lead the vital work that is being done to ensure that the final 1% is eradicated by 2019”


  • Chris Crewther MP (Federal Member for Dunkley)

    “I support all efforts to end polio worldwide”


  • Nic Dakin MP (Labour)

    “I signed the Polio pledge on the One Last Push website to celebrate the fantastic work that has been done globally in recent years to combat this awful disease, but also to acknowledge that there is still much work to be done. Cases of polio have reduced by 99% since 1985 but the last 1% will be the most difficult to achieve and there are many countries that still need our support.”


  • Martyn Day MP (Scottish National Party)

  • Lord Dholakia (Liberal Democrats)

    “There is no cure for polio but there is a vaccine and it is a vaccine that every child from around the world should have access to, irrespective of where they come from. I’m delighted therefore to be associated with this campaign to rid the world of this awful, but preventable disease”


  • Oliver Dowden MP (Conservative)

They must support these workers in giving one last push.”

  • Tim Farron MP (LIBERAL DEMOCRATS)

    “The polio eradication programme demonstrates what can be achieved when global efforts align to make the extraordinary, achievable. The UK can play a huge role in achieving the extraordinary and I urge our government to continue its support of polio eradication efforts.”

One of my proudest moments as an MEP has been to lead the European Parliament’s work on a review and renewal of the European Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership to help collaborative work in order to fight infectious poverty related diseases.

They must support these workers in giving one last push and deliver a lasting global legacy.”


  • Ian Goodenough MP (Federal Member for Moore)

    “With only 23 reported cases of polio since the beginning of 2016, confined to just 3 countries, we are very close to being able to completely eradicate this debilitating disease, which would mean polio would join smallpox as the only diseases to have been eradicated from the world.”


  • Patrick Grady MP (SNP)

    “The UK Government must keep its commitment to push for the global eradication of polio.

  • James Gray MP (Conservative)

At a cost of less than £1 per child, it is important that we continue to support the Global Polio Eradication Initiative to ensure that the vaccine reaches every last child”

  • Kevin Hollinrake MP (Conservative)

    “I am pleased that the UK Government is fully committed to the global eradication of polio. In 2013, the UK committed £300 million over six years to polio eradication, which will help vaccinate up to 360 million children. With India declared polio-free in 2014, a world without polio is now tantalisingly close, and it is crucial to maintain international momentum.”


  • George Howarth MP (Labour)

    “There is currently no cure for polio; it can only be prevented by administering a vaccine, multiple times. 2015 had fewer cases of polio, in fewer places than ever before and the global eradication of polio is possible by 2020 with one final push. As a Polio Champion, I will do everything I can to help eradicate this terrible disease.”

  • Mike Kane MP (Labour)

    “The UK should be at the forefront of international efforts to tackle poverty and poor health provision in developing countries, as we were when the Department for International Development was established in 1997. Labour’s political leadership led to the Millennium Development Goals, and we tripled the UK’s aid budget – helping to lift three million people out of poverty every year between 1997 and 2010. The Government must now show similar ambition in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and efforts to eradicate polio.”


  • Sajjad Karim MEP (Conservative)

    “We are on the brink of eliminating a disease for only the second time in history and both the UK and the EU have had a significant part to play in that success.

  • Michelle Landry MP (Federal Member for Capricornia)

    “I believe the eradication of polio worldwide is very important. We need to get the message out there that parents need to vaccinate their children.”


  • Ian Lavery MP (Labour)

    “It is imperative that Polio is wiped out and I am delighted to sign the pledge.”


  • Chris Law MP (Scottish National Party)

    “It’s difficult for us to remember that polio was once a disease that was feared worldwide, striking suddenly and paralysing mainly children for life. Polio has now been reduced by 99% and survives only among the world’s poorest and most marginalised communities, where it stalks the most vulnerable children. I am delighted to sign this pledge and convinced that through the efforts of the WHO and others, we will get to 100% as soon as practically possible.”

  • Catherine McKinnell MP (Labour)

  • Former MP Greg Mulholland (Liberal Democrats)

    “We are within reach of something historic. We can end polio by 2020 and I hope ministers will continue to do all they can to support this vital cause. I am proud to sign up as a Polio Champion and will hold government to account on its commitment to fighting polio.”


  • Former MP Roger Mullin (Scottish National Party)

    “This is a subject which is of great personal interest to me, as Post-Polio Syndrome has touched my own family, with my wife Barbara having been affected by this condition.”


  • Ian Murray MP (Labour)

    “We have a real opportunity to confine this disease to the history books. We should do all we can to make that happen. That’s why I fully support this campaign.”

    “Eradicating polio worldwide is an achievable aim that we should all support. All people, no matter where they live deserve protection from this preventable disease.

  • Dr Dan Poulter MP (Conservative)

    “I was honoured to meet a local constituent who had been chosen to be part the One Last Push video launched on World Polio Day; I was heartened to see first-hand, the courage and determination shown by him in overcoming the challenges of living with polio.

I am therefore very happy to support this campaign.”


  • Gavin Robinson MP (Democratic Unionist Party)

    “It is often too easy to support something so clearly achievable and worthy, but I wish to encourage decision makers in the UK and elsewhere to engage in a concerted effort to eradicate Polio once and for all.”


  • Jim Shannon MP (Democratic Unionist Party)

  • David Simpson MP (Democratic Unionist Party)

    “We are so close to ridding the world of this truly horrible disease. Yet we cannot stop just yet. The continued support of the UK Government is crucial on this home stretch and that is why I fully support the One last Push campaign! Let’s end Polio before the end of this parliament!”


  • Senator Lisa Singh (Senator for Tasmania)

    “It is a pleasing fact that the world is now very close to eradicating polio.
