Our pledge to rid polio from the planet

Rotary and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have announced a new commitment of up to $450 million to support the eradication of polio.

To an audience of nearly 40,000 Rotary members attending the Rotary Convention in Atlanta, Bill Gates and Rotary International President John Germ, renewed Rotary’s longstanding support for ending polio in a keynote speech.

“The vision of eradicating polio began with Rotary, and its support of that effort has been unwavering for more than 35 years,” said Gates.
