MANIFEST, A Health Authorities worldwide. People who have had polio worldwide. sign now

As you are aware since October 1985 following the intervention of Rotary International (RI) cooperating with the World Health Organization (WHO) and celebrating the 40th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations (UN) was established on October 24 as World Day against poliomielitis.
On the same date of this 2011, will be commemorated the twenty-sixth event of the World Day against polio be discussed of the achievements in the last year, although it presented a positive balance, the proposed goals will not achieve the expected results, because we know the polio remains endemic in some countries and there have been cases of imported polio in countries where it is considered eradicated. We are aware of the great efforts made by governments, global health institutions and organizations with altruistic to provide the financial resources to eliminate this terrible disease.
However, as at other times it will change the due date for its eradication, as the financial, political, religious, geographical and cultural remain major impediments to achieving the cherished dream for many years, the celebration of the end poliomielitis!
There is little that has been done, but much remains to be done, although there are still cases of polio at an average of 1000 per year, far too many cases for the twenty-first century medicine, we hope that this scourge will disappear forever. while continue the circulation of wild poliovirus anywhere in the world, will be latent reinfection of the virus-free zones and therefore the recurrence of epidemics in countries that believe that the virus was eradicated in its population and have been declared free of wild-type virus, have lowered their rate of vaccination, allowing still exists the danger of epidemics anywhere in the world.
There is little to celebrate!
In commemoration of World Day against polio, this 2011 again will be notably absent from the past, survivors of the great epidemics of the last century! Those who traveled through life, including the burden of fifty years or more of the aftermath left us by the attack of this virus. Overlooked by doctors and medicine, for reasons of number of cases, they forgot what is polio, or never studied it because it does not appear in the books and if they do, is only by curiosity about a disease that no longer exists. Those who suffer multiple corrective surgeries (many of them experimental, including amputations of limbs affected), forced to isolation. Those who use heavy prosthesis, not rare look shoddy and hurt our meats. Those who were stuck in artificial lungs for weeks or months. Large users of crutches, canes and wheelchairs. Those who have never gotten out of bed by the gravity of their consequences and those killed by the virus attack.
For this and other reasons:
POLIO SURVIVORS
DECLARE:
Our strongest protest against the oblivion to which we have been subjected, approximately 20 million people worldwide.
People who suffer from polio, are not stable indefinitely, as people say they never knew and do not know what is the disease
In the past few years that begins a slow and gradual deterioration of our health and the exacerbation of our sequels, which increase our disabilities, it undermines our health and is diminishing our quality of life. The OMS has classified and is in full force, this circumstance called Postpoliomyelitis Syndrome in January of 2010, which stated in ICD-10 with the code G14. Forcing their compliance with all member countries..
That there are many medical studies from prestigious institutions and universities that support no doubt the existence of this syndrome, recent studies published in prestigious journals and multiple literature, for consultation, made available to anyone who requires knowledge of the condition..
That despite this, still refuses this pathological condition in most of Latin America and other European countries, making patients who suffer with long journeys to hospitals and clinics without answers to their ailments or if found, are to the diagnosis of which is the product of his imagination, denying them the care they need or sending them to work with health risk and physical integrity.
we know if there will and knowledge, there isnĀ“t little we can do for us, on the contrary there is much that can and should do to prevent the progressive deterioration, increasing our disability and decreased quality of our life..
Believe it or not we are still here!
