30 Jan You’re invited: A very special polio event with Bill Gates
Posted at 04:32h in News
I’ve got some really cool news: Next Monday, Brooke Riley (one of our fabulous global health experts) and I (your trusty ONE blogger) will be heading up to New York City for a very special event hosted by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, “Polio Eradication and the Power of Vaccines.”
We are seriously this close to beating polio. Thanks to a global childhood immunization effort, polio has been reduced by 99 percent. If we can get that number to 100, it will be the second disease in history to be completely eliminated.
