Ukraine’s children are vulnerable to a polio outbreak.  While the global health community has been rightly focused on containing West Africa’s deadly Ebola outbreak, a potential health crisis involving another infectious virus — polio — worries many of the same experts.  While we celebrate our success--there have been only 21 new cases this year..we still have to be aware of the possibility of the polio virus finding new footing in areas decimated by fighting and poverty..
