“…Defeating measles has long been a cherished dream in global health. … Opposing camps within public health argue either that the time is now, to piggyback on top of current campaigns, or after polio is gone, because we can only fund and focus on one global disease at a time. In other words: Is the best way to end measles in the future by not ending measles now? Could the failures — and near-successes — of other eradication campaigns ultimately teach us how to conquer measles?…” (McKenna, 2/12).
