far-reaching than with its PolioPlus program.
Since its launch in 1985, more than two billion
children have received oral polio vaccine as part
of this program.
28
TRF Programs PolioPlus
The Global Polio Eradication Initiative has
reduced the incidence of polio by more than 99
percent. Today, endemic wild poliovirus has been
eliminated from all but four countries
(Afghanistan, India, Nigeria and Pakistan) in the
world, and just 945 cases were reported worldwide
in August 2008. Millions more were protected by
vaccination.
29
TRF Programs PolioPlus
Currently, the global funding gap for
2008-09 stands at US 490 million. More than 10
million children will be paralysed in the next 40
years if the world fails to capitalize on its
US5 billion global investment in polio
eradication.
