Eradicating Acute Flaccid Paralysis ("Polio" aka POLIOMYELITIS)

Eradicating Acute Flaccid Paralysis ("Polio" aka POLIOMYELITIS)

One of the most devastating and crippling disease that target young and tender kids is Polio. Polio is described medically as Acute Flaccid Paralysis. Thanks to the untiring efforts of Government of Tamil Nadu, TN has been remaining polio free for the past few years.  Today is actually the second round of Pulse Polio Drops day.

If you know a kid that is in  your vicinity, ensure that you reminds its parents to take it to the nearest Public Health Center or a hospital to administer Pulse Polio Drops for free.

Let us join hands with the Government of Tamil Nadu in its noble venture of making Tamil Nadu as Polio-free. Check out more details on the same at Polio-free Tamil Nadu page.

Central and State Governments of other states too have initiated similar healthcare missions. Following are a few URLs for readers' quick and easy reference:
