Coffee with Polio Experts: Prof David Heymann, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
David Heymann, long-time public health expert, discusses what lessons smallpox eradication teaches us in eradicating a disease, and why it is critical to complete the job of polio eradication.
Polioviruses will be kept after eradication in a limited number of laboratories and vaccine manufacturing facilities worldwide. Containment of these viruses will be critical to maintaining a polio-free world.
Public health legend and head of the Containment Advisory Group Professor David Heymann talks about some of the similarities and differences between poliovirus and smallpox containment, and work of the CAG.
