30 October 2014 – This week, Afghanistan launched a national polio immunization campaign targeting 8.9 million children in all of the country’s 34 provinces. This week’s campaign marks the fourth round of national polio immunization campaigns this year. The Eastern Mediterranean Region is currently the most polio-affected Region in the world, with two of the three remaining endemic countries, and with two outbreaks (in the Horn of Africa and the Middle East) posing serious threats to regional and global eradication efforts.
