Polio is a frightening disease that paralyzes and kills. In this Director's Briefing, Dr. Tom Frieden discusses how the finish line for polio eradication is in sight. In 2012, there were fewer cases of polio in fewer countries than ever before in history -- 222 cases. That is far from the 350,000 cases recorded when CDC and our partners started the campaign to eradicate polio in 1988. Although we have made tremendous progress against what used to be one of the most terrible diseases of our time, there is still work to do to get over the finish line.
