Nepal observed the day by organizing various programmes across the nation. Nepal is very close to declaring the polio- free nation since no polio cases have been reported since August 2010, but Nepal can only be declared a polio-free country only after all the countries in the South-East Asia are free from the virus, according to a health expert at the Ministry of Health. The World Health Organisation is in the process of declaring South-East Asia region as polio-free region, making a regional polio-free certification possible in 2014.  Photo NMF
