End Polio Now, Join the PolioPlus Society

Rotary’s Legacy in the Effort to Eradicate Polio Worldwide
End Polio Now

 Today, Rotarians worldwide continue to work through our polio networks to eradicate polio.     
 
UPDATE 2022:  After nearly reaching our goal last year when only 2 cases of polio were reported, however recent news is that polio is being detected around the world in places where it hasn't been found in decades, including the United states.  27 wild cases in the world.  2 in Afghanistan, 19 in Pakistan, and 6 in Mozambique.  It only takes a minute or two to be a part of a world solution.  Vaccines have been deployed to stop outbreaks.  At this time, please consider joining the PolioPlus Society by October 24, by submitting a commitment form to contribute at least $100/year until polio is eradicated.
 
UPDATE 2020:  We’re committed to service, and we’re not afraid to dream big and set bold goals.  We began our fight against polio in 1979 with a project to immunize 6 million children in the Philippines.  Today, polio remains endemic in only three countries—down from 125 in 1988.  As recently as July 2020, Nigeria has been certified Polo Free.  In August of 2020, End Polio Now announced that only 85 cases remain worldwide.  29 in Afghanistan and 56 in Pakistan.  Reaching last year’s commitment means The Gates Foundation then matched donations 2-1, which in turn, the Rotary Foundation matched.
