Workshop Number: CC-F-500
In 1980, the World Health Assembly officially endorsed the global eradication of smallpox. In 1988, the World Health Assembly voted to next eradicate polio from the planet with a target date of 2000. In 2010 there are still a few hundred cases of polio in the world. This presentation will provide an overview of the global polio eradication program, with a specific focus on Nepal (where the presenter worked as an advisor/consultant to the Government in Nepal and helped organize efforts to immunize 3,000,000 children in 3 days).
