Niyazmatov (cover photo) is one of over 400 people in Tajikistan who became sick with #polio in 2010, during the first importation of wild poliovirus into the European Region since it was certified as polio-free in 2002. Intensive surveillance and #immunization efforts in the country and its neighbours, delivering over 45 million doses of polio #vaccine, ensured that the outbreak was contained. On 21 June 2012, the Region celebrates 10 years since certification.
