7th anniversary of the last case of wild poliovirus in WHO SEAR

Today (13 Jan 2018)  is the 7th anniversary of the last case of wild poliovirus in the WHO South-East Asia Region!

This tremendous achievement would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of health workers across the Region. The date – 13 January – the last time that wild poliovirus crippled a child in WHO South-East Asia Region in the year 2011, should be a reminder to all countries of the continued need to reach every child with polio vaccines and to strengthen disease surveillance so that poliovirus does not return to cripple children in our Region.
