Expert groups in polio-infected areas are actively evaluating progress. Last week, the Technical Advisory Group for Afghanistan and Pakistan met to review latest epidemiology, while this week an international outbreak assessment is evaluating the situation in the Horn of Africa. Similar expert bodies will convene in other infected areas/countries over the coming months. - See more at: http://www.polioeradication.org/Dataandmonitoring/Poliothisweek.aspx#sth...
