The Turkish experience of poliomyelitis before and after a vaccination campaign.
It is very important that the poliovirus is eradicated as it has caused serious and permanent disabilities during the present century.
In order to achieve success in the rehabilitation of poliomyelitis patients the role of vaccination campaigns as an essential part of preventive medical care should be appreciated.
After every vaccination campaign successful results have been obtained.
Thus we are optimistic that if these vaccination campaigns are carried out successful results will be achieved as was obtained after the 1985 vaccination campaign.
As is understood from our report, according to the results of the 1985 vaccination campaign successful long-term results have been achieved.
The results of the 1995 campaign will also be seen at a future date as this article does not report them.
We appreciate the cooperation and support given by WHO during the staging of these campaigns.
