Abstract:

Despite the development of vaccines, polio still finds opportunities to thrive. This program outlines the history of humanity's battle with the virus-including its appearance in ancient Egypt and the 20th-century struggle against it championed by FDR. The video also highlights the present-day efforts of health organizations and charitable groups to globally eradicate the disease. Interviews with UNICEF and WHO leaders accompany scenes from vaccination campaigns in the African nation of Burkina Faso and in Aligarh, India. The program emphasizes the need to work within local cultural conventions in order to maximize communication and outreach.
