Eradicate polio once and for all

Today, the world stands at the threshold of being polio-free—less than 2,000 cases were recorded in 2005, down from 350,000 cases just 15 years ago. But a global funding shortfall for immunization activities through 2007 threatens to derail the effort. Each new case of polio is another child afflicted, and another threat to the dream of a world without polio.

The UN Foundation is working with governments, NGOs, and individuals alike in pursuit of polio eradication. Together, we can attain a unique legacy, and ensure that no child is ever again paralyzed by polio.

Help us make polio history.
