Did You Know?  In financial terms, the global effort to eradicate polio has saved more than US$27 billion in health costs since 1988. If the virus is eradicated by the turn of the decade as projected, an additional US$20 to 25 billion will be saved by 2035.      
Quote of the Day - From the Global Polio Eradication Initiative "If enough people in a community are immunized against polio, the virus will be deprived of susceptible hosts and will die out. High levels of vaccination coverage must be maintained to stop transmission and prevent outbreaks occurring. The Global Polio Eradication Initiative is constantly assessing the optimal use of the different types of vaccine to prevent paralytic polio and stop poliovirus transmission in different areas of the world."
