Excerpt
1. Executive Summary 2004 saw the most important progress ever made towards the goal of a polio-free world. In Asia, cases were nearly halved compared with the previous year. In Africa, the polio eradication effort was put back on track, following the resumption of immunization in Kano, Nigeria (which had been suspended due to unfounded concerns as to the safety of the polio vaccine) and the African Union’s (AU) synchronization of polio immunization campaigns across 23 countries of that continent. Of critical importance, full ‘intensified’ polio eradication activities in the first half of 2005 were able to go ahead, thanks to generous financial contributions by existing and new donors.
