Rotary and Polio Eradication in the World

Worldwide, Rotary is raising $200million at this time, help us to finish this job.  See how we are getting on here

There is a fascinating video, featuring Dr. Bruce Aylward, of the World Health Organisation, on the Rotary GB&I website in the 'news' area. It gives an excellent overview of the 20+ years battle against polio and where we are currently, undertaking the all-important 'final inch' to eradicate this devastating disease.  A must-see for all Rotarians, whose 'heroic' efforts are acknowledged in the video.
