Eradication of POLIO

It is considered that it could be the second human disease to be eradicated from the planet.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation invited the Carlos Slim Foundation to join this latest effort to eradicate polio, which has led to the purchase of more than 653 million vaccines for children in 33 countries in Africa and Asia.

Efforts have focused on three countries where the disease has not been eradicated, including Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria. This has delayed progress in its elimination, and it may take a little longer than expected to eradicate it from these regions.

In addition, Carlos Slim Foundation supports the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), which has developed a strategic plan to eradicate the disease completely in six years, with unprecedented actions.
