Poliovirus is at its lowest levels since records began, and remains endemic in parts of only three countries. Until polio is eradicated worldwide, however, all polio-free regions, including the European Region, remain at risk of importation. 

WHO/Europe supports Member States in their efforts to maintain the Region's polio-free status and contributes to coordinated efforts to eradicate the disease worldwide in accordance with the Polio Eradication and Endgame Strategic Plan.
