Through all of history, the world has managed to eradicate just one human disease — smallpox, in 1980. Today, thanks to the long-term dedication of numerous organizations, donors, corporations, governments, researchers, health-care workers, and volunteers on the ground, two more are on the verge of being wiped out: Guinea worm disease and polio. The challenges of eradicating diseases are enormous, but it can be done through smart strategies and a huge amount of work. The multimedia exhibition "Countdown to Zero: Defeating Disease" explores the factors that determine whether a disease can be eradicated and the scientific and social innovations that are making it possible.
