Challenge

Wild Polio Virus is still found in Afghanistan & Pakistan, until these countries are declared Polio free, the very threat that Polio could return to other countries is only a plane ride away. We need to eradicate this terrible disease, so that all the children of the world can play together, work together and become adults, free of paralysis.

Solution

This project will help to immunise all the children of the world, but specifically to immunise children in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the only 2 countries still left with the Wild Polio Virus

Long-Term Impact

Eradication from the world, of only the 2nd disease, since smallpox..
