On May 5, 2014, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the international spread of polio to be a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC). Currently 10 countries (Afghanistan, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Iraq, Israel, Somalia, Nigeria, Cameroon, Pakistan, and Syria) have active transmission of wild poliovirus (WPV) that could spread to other countries through international travel. Due to the public health risk to other countries, vaccination requirements have been issued for travelers in order to prevent further spread of the disease.
