“So long as we never give up – then polio does not stand a chance.”

 

Bill Gates at Rotary Joint District Conference, Spokane, WA

May 18, 2019

In this program, you will review the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, learn about a promising new polio vaccine, and be updated on the status of acute flaccid myelitis (a polio-like syndrome). You will also hear about progress in the development of a vaccine to prevent COVID-19, and the impact of this disease on cardiovascular health and delivery of health care in general.

 

 

You will see how the capacity built by global polio eradication strengthened the fight against the pandemic and prepared the public health workforce to prevent COVID-19 once an effective vaccine is available.
