Let's put an end to polio

Polio is a highly contagious disease caused by the polio virus. Although very rare, the virus can attack the parts of the brain that help you breathe, which can lead to death. Polio has no cure, but it can be prevented with vaccination.

World Polio Day offers an opportunity to renew the commitment to global eradication and ensure that this virus does not return to the Americas.
