Afghanistan and Pakistan are two of the remaining three countries where polio hasn’t yet been eliminated. Courageous polio vaccinators travel to remote villages often in dangerous areas to immunize millions of children. Thanks to the heroic effort of these vaccinators the world is on the brink of eradicating this disease.

Since their introduction over the past several years, rotavirus vaccines have been saving lives from the leading cause of severe childhood diarrhea. In April 2016, the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases published new data from several countries recording evidence of this lifesaving impact (http://bit.ly/26XzI3V). We talked to researchers from PATH and the US CDC to understand the importance of rotavirus vaccines within an integrated approach to defeat diarrheal disease.

Two vaccines have brought us to the brink of a polio-free world: the oral polio vaccine and the inactivated polio vaccine. Learn how these vaccines work and the different, complementary roles they have to play in delivering a polio-free world. This is one of a series of six videos on what is being done to secure a polio-free world: from the vaccines that are being used to stop polio; to how the oral polio vaccine is being phased out from April 2016 to remove any risk of vaccine-derived polioviruses, starting with the switch from trivalent to bivalent oral polio vaccine in April 2016; and how securely containing polioviruses within laboratories and vaccine manufacturing sites will keep every last child protected, long into the future.

In September 2014, Nepal became the first Gavi eligible country in the world to introduce the Inactivated Polio Vaccine (IPV). But in Nepal, the introduction of IPV was seen as a piece of the larger strategy to strengthen the entire immunization system. In this video, learn about the strategy that immunization workers in Nepal are using to ensure that every child in every village receives every vaccine. Nepal is not alone in their efforts. By the end of 2015, more than 100 other countries will also be taking this important step towards polio eradication and introducing IPV.

The Ministry of Health in Benin has used an innovative approach that combines modeling with qualitative and quantitative assessment to identify the strategic direction for optimizing the vaccine supply chain. These guidelines have been implemented for demonstration purposes in the Comé health area with the support of the Agence de Médecine Préventive (AMP) via the LOGIVAC project. The activities carried out since 2013 have had a positive impact on the performance of the health system, in particular by ensuring better availability of quality vaccines in health facilities

Fewer children in the United States are getting vaccinated. That’s bad news for those kids, and also for public health in general. Often, the response is to argue and debate and get angry at people who are we see as making terrible, irrational decisions. Instead of doing that, let’s use science to understand why this is happening in the first place.

World Polio Day is a day when we celebrate the health workers and volunteers who are going to great lengths to fight polio. Never before in the history of polio have so few children in so few countries contracted the crippling virus – but we cannot rest until the number of cases is zero.

More than 1.7 billion doses of polio vaccine were delivered to children last year alone and continued focus is key to the complete eradication of polio.

The case of the English physician and surgeon Edward Jenner (1749-1823) is one of perseverance and method, but also of an audacity that today would have put him behind bars. Contrary to what is sometimes presented, the idea of vaccinations did not arise as a “eureka” moment. In Jenner’s epoch, variolation, or inoculation, was practiced using smallpox scabs or pus in healthy people to protect them from what was then a terrible plague.

"Twin Voices" by Janice Flood Nichols, provides a unique and timely glimpse into polio, a virus that killed and maimed millions of children and adults during the twentieth century. In 1953, polio struck DeWitt, NY (an eastern suburb of Syracuse) with a vengeance. In a first grade class of twenty-four students, eight children contracted the disease -- one child, Frank Flood Jr., died sixty-one hours after admission to City Hospital; another first grader and her older sister died several years later of complications. Frankie's twin sister, Janice, was admitted to the hospital on the evening of his burial. Diagnosed with paralytic polio, Janice recovered. She participated in the 1954 Salk vaccine trial, as one of nearly two million "Polio Pioneers." Today, she remains dedicated to the goal of worldwide polio eradication. Twin Voices tells the story of polio, the disease, and the story of one family's bout with the killer, in multiple "voices."

This July, it was reported that a woman from Washington State in the US had died of measles. It was the first measles death in the country in 12 years and comes after a huge spike in the number of cases of the disease. There is little doubt about what has caused the rise. The 'anti-vax' movement – activists who refuse vaccines believing them to be harmful to children – is vocal, vibrant and virulent. But with their claims proven time and again to be without any scientific basis, why are the 'anti-vaxxers' still going – and apparently growing?

Vaccines are not just for kids - they're for life. It's hard to keep track of all the ways that we protect the people that we love and the things that matter most to us. When we were kids, we learned that protection is important at all ages. Now it’s our turn to teach our kids the value of protection. Vaccines are another way that we can protect our loved ones. In fact vaccines do such a good job that its easy to forget how effective and important they are. Thanks to vaccines smallpox has been completely eradicated - and polio has almost gone too. While measles is almost completely gone in North and South America you and your loved ones are still at risk if you live in Europe.
