    Poliomelitis has featured on various stamps which promote immunisation programmes and in some of the issues aimed at raising public awareness of the disabled. Many countries have issued stamps to advertise the “Stop Polio Campaign”. The campaign logo is part of the design of the 150 franc stamp from Malagasy Republic promoting oral vaccination against polio. The 1996 Swaziland stamp issued as part of the set commemorating the 50th anniversary of UNICEF shows the consequences of poliomyelitis with wasting and foot drop of the right leg. The stamp is inscribed “no more polio”.
