The Last Polio Ward Of India. A Proud Moment For All Of Us.

On January 13th, 2014, India was declared polio-free. Dr. Mathew Varghese, an orthopedic surgeon, runs India’s last polio ward at St. Stephen’s Hospital in Delhi. Five years ago, India accounted for nearly half of all new wild poliovirus cases in the country. On 13th January 2014, India celebrated three years without a single case. It’s one of the greatest public health accomplishments of all time.
