Close to eradicating polio

Over centuries, polio has wiped out millions of lives. In 1988, close to 1,000 cases of paralytic polio were recorded every day.

As a health journey partner,

Sanofi has been involved in this fight from the very beginning. We have provided more than 6 billion doses that made the final stage of the program possible.
Today, the number of cases has decreased by more than 99% globally. We could be soon living in a polio-free world.
