At least it isn't Polio - we almost have that disease beaten. Only two countries in the world remain polio endemic, however, as long as a single child remains infected, children in all countries are at risk of contracting polio. Failure to eradicate polio from these last remaining strongholds could result in as many as 200,000 new cases every year, within 10 years, all over the world.
