Polio Eradication - useful resources and links
District resources, links to RIBI and RI pages and to the World Polio Eradication Initiative pages
As we get closer and closer to worldwide Polio Eradiation, it's even more important that we understand why we can't give up or slow down. If you want to be able to tell your collegues, friends, family and club members more about polio then read on...
Social Media Images
These images were provided by Rotary International for us to promote World Immunisation Week, 24th - 30th April 2019.
There are some great videos available to watch, some a little dry but hugely informative, others quite fun and very easily digestible.
We have some A3 posters and pull up banners that clubs may borrow for use at events.
We are also very happy to visit clubs to speak about the Polio campaign.
The Rotary in Britain and Ireland Purple4Polio webpages have lots of useful and interesting information.
There are posters and flyers to download and print.
Facts and Figures
There is a weekly update of polio cases around the world on the Polio Global Eradication Initiative pages.
The Polio Global Eradication Initiative is a partnership of Rotary International, the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organisation and UNICEF.
