Dr Dan meets Suffolk Polio Survivor and calls for One Last Push to eradicate Polio globally

On Friday 21st October, Dr Dan was honoured to meet with local constituent and polio survivor, Giles Long, who was chosen as the face of a new national campaign launched today, to coincide with World Polio Day.  Dr Dan was heartened to see first-hand the courage and determination shown by Giles in overcoming the many challenges of living with polio.

Dr Dan was proud to sign up as a Polo Champion and coupled with his work as Co-Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Global Health, Dr Dan remains hopeful that polio will soon be eradicated globally.  In particular, Dr Dan would like to see One Last Push to back the efforts of the millions of volunteers and health workers around the world who are working in extremely challenging conditions to end the disease.

This new video aims to raise awareness of the opportunity to make polio only the second human disease in history that we have ever managed to eradicate.  Watch the video here and find out more here
