<< Polio Eradication >>
The programme to eradicate POLIO worldwide continues – the objective is so close, with now only Pakistan, Afganistan and Nigera showing new cases of the disease. India has now been clear of any new cases for over two years. Bodmin Rotary Club will continue to support the aims and raise money whenever they can. The partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative are Rotary International, World Health Organisation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
