"There are few greater gifts we can give future generations than to eradicate a disease. We ourselves know what thatโ€™s like. #Smallpox was only officially declared eradicated in 1980 โ€“ less than 40 years ago. And yet already, it is becoming a distant memory"-@DrTedros #RLMForum
"Every year, over 1 billion people are treated for a neglected tropical disease, & last year 8 countries eliminated at least one NTD.
In the mid-1980s there were almost 3.5M cases of guinea-worm in 20 countries. Last year, there were only 28 cases, in just 3 countries"-@DrTedros
"Onchocerciasis has been eliminated in 4 countries in @pahowho;
Lymphatic filariasis has been eliminated in 16 countries;
Trachoma has been eliminated in 9 countries;
The annual number of sleeping sickness cases has fallen from over 7k in 2012 to less than 1k in 2018"-@DrTedros

Today is #WorldPolioDay.

#Polio is a highly infectious disease caused by a virus. It invades the nervous system, and can cause total paralysis in a matter of hours.

Thanks to vaccines ๐Ÿ’ช, polio cases have decreased by over 99% since 1988. #EndPolio

Itโ€™s #WorldPolioDay.
No child anywhere should suffer from a vaccine-preventable disease. Help us get closer to #polio eradication. Letโ€™s #EndPolio!

#Polio is a distant memory in most parts of the world but itโ€™s still present in some places - mostly affecting children under five. Let's #EndPolio!
