Living with Polio in Nigeria on Edge of Humanity Magazine / by Tadej Znidarcic

Nigeria recently marked two years without a new case of wild poliovirus. That's an immense achievement for a country that as recently as in 2008 reported the most new polio cases in the world. By coincidence, Edge of Humanity Magazine just now published my work on living with polio in northern Nigeria. I'm glad to have met and worked with some of the resilient victims of this disease, and to have contributed to the awareness of the fight against polio. The number of new cases of polio has plummeted worldwide and it looks the war on polio might be finally coming to an end. WHO predicts polio might be wiped out by the end of 2016. It would be only the second time that humanity eradicated a once widespread disease (first was smallpox). Hopefully the day without polio comes soon!
