Global polio eradication campaigns with oral polio vaccine have eradicated wild type polio, yet have been a failure in terms of increasing acute flaccid paralysis cases in children. Case numbers have increased dramatically in spite of oral polio vaccination programs. This is what i call, "The Failure of Global Polio Eradication." (37) (Polio eradication: a failure by Paul Yash)
A Wake Up Call
This failure is a Wake Up call to re-examine what we are doing, and ask some fundamental questions about the etiology of acute flaccid paralysis in children.
