The last detected case of polio in the Region of the Americas was in 1991. This year we celebrate 30 years without the disease!
I hope all of you, your Club, and your District had a great World Polio Day. Many raised large quantities of public awareness and money before, on, or after October 24, 2021

House-to-house polio vaccination set to recommence across Afghanistan in November – WHO and UNICEF welcome the decision by the Taliban leadership supporting the resumption of house-to-house polio vaccination across Afghanistan.
The vaccination campaign, which begins on November 8, will be the first in over three years to reach all children in Afghanistan, including more than 3.3 million children in some parts of the country who have previously remained inaccessible to vaccination campaigns. A second nationwide polio vaccination campaign has also been agreed and will be synchronised with Pakistan’s own polio campaign planned in December.
