Polio News

As of Sept. 1, 2021 only two countries in the world currently have active wild poliovirus - Pakistan and Afghanistan.  This is thanks to the efforts of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, a public/private partnership of which Rotary International is part.  While two is a small number, all countries remain at risk as long as WPV circulates. The world will only be declared free of WPV three years after the detection of the most recent case. 

Eradicating Polio in Afghanistan. After the fall of the Afghanistan government in mid-August, the new leadership has agreed to keep on the acting health minister who has been effective in righting the program. Taliban leaders have visited the national and regional polio offices and pledged their support for the polio eradication program.
