The eradication of smallpox has been called “one of the greatest accomplishments undertaken and performed for the benefit of mankind anywhere or at any time.” And though it's the only human disease in history that has been eradicated, we are on the verge of seeing both Polio and Guinea Worm wiped from the face of the planet.
