Rotary on the Brink of Polio History
Since 1985, Rotary’s key humanitarian priority has been to rid the world of polio. For more than 30 years Rotary has led the campaign to rid the world of polio, protecting 2.5 billion children from paralysis and death.
With Rotary advocacy and fundraising, we are on the brink of one of the greatest global health achievements ever. Rotary spearheaded the campaign at a time when there were over 1,000 polio cases a day in 125 countries, paralysing and even killing children. Today, the number of cases is down by 99.9%.
Over the last 30 years, Rotary has donated $1.6 billion to the eradication effort and has protected over 2.5 billion children from the disease through vaccination programmes. Rotary members continue to be key players in many aspects of the polio programme including on the ground in a number of countries as well as fundraising and advocacy. More information is here
