This special issue of the Pan African Medical Journal documents the experiences and lessons learned from the Nigeria polio program. The papers, written by those who were at the forefront of the fight against polio in Nigeria, cover key topics from surveillance, epidemiology of polio in Nigeria, studies to boost planning and implementation of innovative strategies for outbreak response, seroprevalence study to understand the immunity gaps after the switch, deployment of the nOPV2 vaccine, and adoption of technology, and innovative strategies to mitigate the impact of COVID on polio. Embedded within the narrative of these articles are nuggets that will enhance public health programs within and outside the African Region and will be of great value to the global fight to eradicate all types of polioviruses and make polio history.
