A contribution related to our involvement in the global polio eradication initiative. During the previous years, I participated in the preparation of a report for the World Health Organization (WHO), summarizing the status of poliomyelitis eradication in Poland. Based on our documentation, WHO granted to Poland a polio-free status, together with the entire WHO European Region. In the paper published in the Polish Epidemiological Review, we summarized key WHO performance indicators, and we concluded that more efforts are needed to maintain polio-free status, especially improved of regional surveillance performance.
