Abstract

Substantial progress was achieved during 1996 to further implement the World Health Organization (WHO)-recommended strategies for the global eradication of poliomyelitis (1). An international coalition of partners supporting the eradication effort in countries with endemic polio includes WHO, Rotary International, CDC, United Nations Children's Fund, and governments of countries with and without endemic polio. This report updates progress toward global polio eradication based on information available at WHO as of April 30, 1997.
