The eradication of polio is one of Rotary's longest standing and most significant efforts. Along with our partners, we have helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children against polio in 122 countries. We have reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide and we won't stop until we end the disease for good.
We are very Close to making this world 100% Polio Free thanks to great work by Rotarians, support by world's leading philanthropist - Bill Gates, Rajashree Birla etc.
