Meyrin, Switzerland, February 13, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- For each crown, for each implant, Helvetic Clinics commit to donating 1€ (1 vaccine) to support the UNICEF program to eradicate polio. One in 200 infected children suffer irreversible paralysis, and among those paralyzed children, 5% to 10% will die when their breathing muscles become immobilized. There is no cure for polio but it can be prevented through immunization administered orally. In 1988, the 41st World Health Assembly adopted a resolution for the worldwide eradication of polio. It marked the launch of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), spearheaded by national governments, and supported by UNICEF and other partners including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
"Helping eradicate polio is our contribution to giving back their smile to thousands of children," says Pierre Chaker, cofounder of Helvetic Clinics Budapest.
