Scientific Declaration on Polio Eradication

 Polio Eradication Is Achievable and Urgent, Declare 400+ Global Scientists

Dr Lola Dare of Centre for Health Sciences Training, Research and Development (CHESTRAD) joined hundreds of scientists, doctors and technical experts from around the world to launch the Scientific Declaration on Polio Eradication on 11 April 2013.

To capitalize on this time-limited opportunity to finally end the disease, a wide range of experts have signed the declaration to emphasize the achievability of polio eradication and endorse the Eradication and Endgame Strategic Plan, a new strategy by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) to reach the end of polio by 2018. For additional information about the Scientific Declaration or to view a full list of signatories, please visit the Emory Vaccine Center Website
