Pakistan's volatile northwestern city of Peshawar is the largest reservoir of endemic polio viruses in the world, the World Health Organization said early this year, amid concerns over continuing violence against polio vaccination teams. In Pakistan, Taliban commanders have forbidden vaccination teams access in some areas. A handful of religious leaders have also denounced the campaign as a plot to sterilize Muslim children. The rhetoric has fueled violence against the vaccination teams. Many teams travel only with police protection. Last year there were more than 30 attacks on polio teams.

Marcheline Rosero, 45, disabled from the effects of polio as a child in Ecuador, sits on her bed in her flat in Madrid December 17, 2012. She and her family escaped eviction from their small Madrid flat when she fell behind on mortgage payments two years ago, and lender Bankia repossessed it. The unemployed 45-year-old, confined to a wheelchair by childhood polio, reached an agreement to stay by paying the bank a nominal rent of 240 euros per month.
But under the existing law she still owes most of a 222,000 euro home loan even after handing the property - now valued at 60,000 euros - back to Bankia. "I've got a debt there that I haven't paid back that is accumulating interest," says the former office clerk, greeting her three children as they return from school. Picture taken December 17, 2012.

A child receives a drop of polio vaccine at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) supported Jalozai camp on the outskirts of Peshawar September 25, 2012. Polio attacks the central nervous system and can cause permanent paralysis within hours of infection. There is no cure for polio, but it can be prevented. A polio vaccine given in several doses can protect a child for life. Immunising the last children on earth is an expensive, business - not because the vaccine is costly (most are made by generic manufacturers and cost between 12 and 14 U.S. cents a dose), but because reaching people displaced by war and poverty requires vast operational logistics, time and human resources.

Children with polio play soccer in Goma in eastern Congo, November 15, 2008. Former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo met Congo's Joseph Kabila late on Friday and will fly east to hold talks with rebel leader Laurent Nkunda to try to avert a wider regional war and end a humanitarian crisis. Battles between Nkunda's fighters and the army have uprooted some 250,000 people in Congo's North Kivu province, and Obasanjo is tasked by the United Nations with stopping a repeat of a 1998-2003 conflict that sucked in six African nations.
