International Activities/ Polio Plus
Our aim, with the Rotary movement throughout the world, is to eliminate polio. Rotary, working with the WHO, has been working towards this since 1985 and polio is now only endemic in four countries in the world, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria and India and we are very close to reaching our goal.
With the new vaccines, we are down to less than 2000 cases a year from 1000 cases a day in 1988. To learn more visit the Rotary website or view the history of polio or the latest video showing mass innoculations by a polio team in action.
