In 2016, 155 countries and territories from around the world made history in a coordinated global health effort that took us one step closer to achieving polio eradication. During a two-week time period in April, the health sector swapped out one type of polio vaccine for another, in what is known as “the switch.”

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.

Across the Middle East, countless people have been working tirelessly to stop the polio outbreak that paralysed 28 children in Syria and Iraq in 2013 and 2014. This World Polio Day, we say thank you to all those who have done so much to protect children against this paralysing disease across Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey. World Polio Day is an opportunity to reflect on the incredible progress made towards polio eradication in the past year and to pay tribute to those whose efforts made this progress possible.

"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."
