WHO Says: Somalia is Polio-Free!!!
« on: March 25, 2008, 04:36:30 PM »
Somalia is again polio-free, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) announced today, calling it a 'historic achievement' in public health. Somalia has not reported a case since 25 March 2007, a major landmark in the intensified eradication effort launched last year to wipe out the disease in the remaining few strongholds.

Against a backdrop of widespread conflict, large population movements and a dearth of functioning government infrastructure, transmission of poliovirus in the country has been successfully stopped. This landmark victory is a result of the efforts of more than 10 000 Somali volunteers and health workers who repeatedly vaccinated more than 1.8 million children under the age of five by visiting every household in every settlement multiple times, across a country ranked one of the most dangerous places on earth.

I would like to thank Dr mahdi firts, It is good news if polio has been eradicated by Somali territory. Somalia, where more than 18 years of conflict is going on. many of our population live as refugees every side of the country.
 Again and again we have to say thanks those who did this job speacially 10,000 volunteers and health workers delivered multiple doses of oral vaccine to children in Somalia.

Somalia is polio free while Afghanistan, India, Nigeria and Pakistan are still polio endemic areas.
This says a lot for Somalia despite its obvious lack of central government. although it's in danger of being reinfected from Nigeria again like in 2005.
