The End of Polio

The global campaign to eradicate polio by 2005 is highlighted through numerous eye-catching photographs taken by internationally acclaimed photographer Sebastião Salgado. Begun in 1998, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative is an inspiring example of what can be done when countries across the globe work together against a common enemy. The book, which focuses on the enormous dedication of volunteers and professionals to overcome obstacles to achieving eradication in five African and Asian countries, includes a foreword by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and an essay by Dr. Ciro de Quadros, one of the architects of the campaign.
