|China One Year Polio-free|
9 October 2012 marked 12 months since China’s last polio case.
In 2011, polio from Pakistan had infected the country,
which had eradicated indigenous polio in 1994. China
conducted a model response, and successfully stopped the outbreak in record time
– three months from index to last case. For more on the outbreak response
