South African President Nelson Mandela, Chairman of the Committee for a Polio-free Africa, launches an intensive campaign called 'Kick Polio out of Africa' to bolster routine and mass immunizations against polio throughout the continent. In 2001, a cold-storage box containing polio vaccine is transported to an immunization site in Sierra Leone.
