End Polio Now

Polio Plus - the most ambitious programme in Rotary's history

We are currently heavily committed to supporting the Polio Plus/End Polio Now programme, raising funds towards the eradication of this dreadful disease. Since the first vaccinations in the Phillippines in 1979 there has been a 99.9% reduction, with recent cases confined to Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan. Now with the help of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, we believe that polio can be consigned to the history books in the near future.
