By 1988, polio had disappeared from the US, UK, Australia and much of Europe but remained prevalent in more than 125 countries. The same year, the World Health Assembly adopted a resolution to eradicate the disease completely by the year 2000. 

In 2015, polio remains endemic in only two countries – Pakistan and Afghanistan. No new cases have been reported in Africa for the past year.
