The Global Polio Eradication Initiative is a partnership between governments, the World Health Organization (WHO), Rotary International, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the United Nations Children's Fund.

The programme has claimed some remarkable successes, most notably India, which was declared polio-free in February. This years National Immunization Days against Polio may be the last!

Pictures (by Sander van Hulsenbeek and Ger Rolsma) were made in Moradabad (UP), once a Polio hotspot. Now free of new cases since 2009!
