Angola celebrates a year with no new polio infectionsListen /
August 10 marks a year that Angola has remained polio-free, moving the country and the world closer to total eradication.
Only three countries remain endemic – Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
In recent years, Angola has made significant progress in the fight against polio.
