8th anniversary of the last case of wild poliovirus in WHO SEAR

Jan 13 2019, Today is the 8th anniversary of the last case of wild poliovirus in World Health Organization South-East Asia Region. The last case of wild polio was seen in a two-year-old girl in Howrah, West Bengal, India.
An intense response by Government of India, WHO and partners ensured it remained the last case of wild poliovirus in the country and the Region. This paved the way for polio-free certification of WHO South-East Asia Region on 27 March 2014.
