Vaccination against polio in India. WHO celebrates the end of transmission of the disease in the country.

The World Health Organization (WHO) concludes 2012 with advances considered a milestone in the fight against diseases. According to the UN body, among the major achievements of this year is the eradication of polio transmission in India.

The UN agency said the Millennium Development Goals were reached in advance in relation to drinking water.

The WHO said governments around the world have adopted important measures to fight illegal trade in tobacco products, but also in the monitoring of non-communicable diseases that are not transmitted from person to person, and in search of the influenza virus, H5N1.

New statistics from the World Health Organization show the growing challenge to combat high blood pressure and diabetes.

Because of this, 15 million babies are born prematurely each year, worldwide. Meanwhile, authorities say, overall, the survival rate of children is increasing.

In 2012, WHO helped fight several global epidemics, among them that of Ebola in Uganda.

The organization encouraged countries to invest also in the fight against malaria, to facilitate access to contraceptive methods and even in combating HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
