India brings hope to stalled fight against polio

In this photo taken Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2011, Zuhaib, 3, a girl diagnosed with polio at an early age, reacts in fear after seeing polio vaccine administrators on the outskirts of Ghaziabad in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. An effective campaign by the government and international aid groups is finally driving polio out of India. In just five days last month, 2 1/2 million workers visited 68 million homes to inoculate 172 million children under 5 years old. Across India, one of four nations where polio remains endemic, only 42 cases were recorded in 2010, a drop of 94 percent from the year before. (AP Photo/Manish Swarup)
