Pioneering immunologist Sir Gustav Nossal supports polio eradication campaign

Sir Gustav Nossal – winner of the Albert Einstein World Award of Science and former Chairman of the WHO’s vaccines and biologicals program oversight committee – has added his support to the Global Poverty Project’s The End of Polio campaign.

Delivery of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s 2011-12 strategic plan is currently threatened by a $590 million funding gap, The End of Polio campaign is working to build public support for eradication efforts.

Three of the four countries in which polio remains endemic are members of the Commonwealth of Nations, and the campaign is working to make polio a priority issue at this year’s Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Perth, before building global advocacy efforts to secure additional funding commitments from donor countries.

With more than 2,000 supporters signed on already, the campaign is off to a very successful start! Please add your voice at www.theendofpolio.com
