Polio eradication programme: some ethical issues
In 1988, the World Health Assembly passed Resolution WHA 41.28, which committed the World Health Organization (WHO) to the global eradication of poliomyelitis by the year 2000, by providing immunisation exclusively with oral polio vaccine (OPV). The deadline for polio eradication from India was later extended to the end of 2002 and again to 2004. It is now 2005.
There are currently no refbacks.
