Health Officials Plan Polio Immunization Campaign In 4 Countries After Disease Re-Emerges In Nigeria

NPR: Nigeria Has To Wipe Out Polio — Again
“…Last year, the World Health Organization declared the country to be ‘polio-free.’ That milestone meant the disease was gone from the entire continent of Africa, a major triumph in the multibillion-dollar global effort to eradicate the disease. But … [t]hree new cases of polio have been confirmed in areas liberated from Boko Haram militants, prompting health officials to launch a massive campaign to vaccinate millions of children across four countries in West and Central Africa…” (Beaubien, 9/14).
