On the back of unprecedented progress in polio eradication, India now aspires for a polio-free status by 2014 by preventing the import of polio virus from neighbouring countries and boosting immunization. Earlier, the World Health Organisation (WHO) had taken India off the list of polio-endemic countries.

 

 


If no new case is reported till 2014, the country will be declared polio free. Among the remaining polio endemic countries of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria, two of them have close proximity to India.
