A recording of the January grassroots conference call is now available to download here.
With only 3 countries in the world – Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan – recording polio cases last year, there is real hope in 2017 that the disease can be eradicated for good. This month’s action focuses on the importance of ensuring the UK government does all it can to support the replenishment of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.
We were joined on the call by guest speaker Rod Curtis, the External Communications Specialist on polio at UNICEF in New York, who shared his first hand experience of working on polio campaigns. He talked with us about his most memorable moments whilst working on the polio campaign in India, as well as explaining more about the obstacles that still need to be overcome in Afghanistan and Pakistan to ensure that every last child receives the polio vaccine.
