  • War on polio: A call to African mothers (Angelique Kidjo, Al Jazeera) Nigeria is the only African country to still have cases of polio occurring. Activists (including the author of this article) are working to get complete vaccination coverage for the largest country on the continent with the support of government and thousands of Nigerian members of Rotary International. The largest country in the world, India, is celebrating its third year without a single case of polio but there are still pockets where polio remains entrenched. Just next door to India, Pakistan is still harboring the disease with 59 cases so far in 2014. The entire rest of the planet has had only 15 cases reported. The WHO (World Health Organization has banned travel from Pakistan unless there is proof of vaccination against polio at least four months previous and within the past twelve months.
