What is that Polio Picture? It's a picture of a structure known as the Friendship Gate – with people laden with bags and boxes weaving paths beneath it. This isn’t an ordinary street, but a border crossing between Afghanistan and Pakistan, where people, goods, livestock, and sometimes, the Poliovirus, pass from one country to the other.  This is where we will finally defeat Polio!
