Rotary and the world needs your help to reach the ultimate goal of a polio-free world.
In 1985 when Rotary pledged to wipe out the life-threatening and disabling polio virus off the face of the earth over 1,000 children were affected every single day in 125 countries.
Þ There is absolutely no cure, but polio is entirely preventable with a vaccine
Þ Polio mainly affects children under age 5
Þ Until we end polio absolutely everywhere children all over the world are at risk

The polio-virus is literally just a plane ride away but thankfully we have a vaccine. Much work is still to be done by Rotary and our partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative to reach the goal of a polio free world. Over 2 billion doses of polio vaccine are administered to more than 400 million children in around 50 countries every year.
The Polio programme’s legacy is so much more than just wiping the polio virus off the face of the earth. It has been invaluable in the Covid-19 response in many countries, helped stop ebola in Nigeria and immunised 8 million people against yellow fever to name just a few.
