What it took to draw a line under a polio outbreak in Sudan

The Republic of Sudan closed a polio outbreak on 15 September 2022. It had paralyzed 58 children across 42 districts before it stopped circulating.

This two-year old outbreak of circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus (cVDPV) type 2 began after the virus was imported from neighbouring Chad.
