‘A Polio Free India’ – Commendable Achievement !

Polio-Free-India

“The President said that experts had feared that India’s high birth rate, population density, poor sanitation and low level of awareness about this disease would make the objective of polio eradication almost impossible to realize.

“Today, India has demonstrated that despite all the constraints faced by health authorities in a populous and very large developing nation like India, eradication of diseases like polio is possible. Our victory over polio will pave the way for the certification of India and other countries in the South East Asia Region as ‘polio-free’, he added.

Mukherjee, who attended the function to celebrate the eradication of Polio in India which was organized by Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare here yesterday, said it proves the efficacy of the innovative tools and strategies applied by Government of India for the prevention and treatment of the communicable and non-communicable diseases.” ( Excerpt from : ‘India’s success against Polio is indeed a milestone towards universal health care: Mukherjee’, Business Standard, Feb 12, 2014)
