Polio epidemics have crippled thousands of people, mostly young children. The disease has caused paralysis and death for much of human history. A global effort to eradicate polio began in 1988, led by the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and The Rotary Foundation. These efforts have reduced the number of annual diagnosed cases by 99%; from an estimated 350,000 cases in 1988 to a low of 483 cases in 2001, after which it has remained at a level of about 1,000 cases per year (1,606 in 2009). Polio is one of only two diseases currently the subject of a global eradication program, the other being Guinea worm disease. If the global Polio Eradication initiative is successful it would be only the third time humankind has ever completely eradicated a disease, after smallpox in 1979 and rinderpest in 2010.
