24th Ocotber is World Polio Day .. we are in the brink of eradicating polio from the world ..  in 1985 Rotary pledged to rid th world of poilio and there were 1000 new cases A DAY. This year there have been about 26 case so far this year!!  There is the possibility that 2016 could see the last ever case of polio .. but vaccination must continue until it has been "gone" for 3 years.
