In 1988, polio infected nearly 1,000 children every day. In 2008, fewer than 2,000 cases were reported for the entire year. Your generous contribution will help write the final chapter: eradication.

End Polio Now

Take a look at the videos below, and you’ll see that Rotary International has been persistently working to end Polio since the early 1980’s.

The current fundraising goal is 200 million dollars - ambitious but absolutely achievable.

And when we reach that goal, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will more than double it with a 355 million dollar grant. Do the math. That’s over half a BILLION dollars.

The Swim to End Polio is playing a critical role in bringing this dream closer to reality.

Africa United to Tackle Polio Epidemic


View Africa united to tackle polio epidemic in a larger map

Track national and international efforts to reach 85 million children in 19 countries and stop a year-long polio epidemic in West and Central Africa. The campaign kicked off on March 6, 2010, and the map will be updated regularly.

Over 400,000 volunteers and health workers will take part in this mammoth project, which is part of an ongoing response to the epidemic that first spread from polio-endemic Nigeria.

It's all being organized as part of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), a partnership spearheaded by national governments, WHO, Rotary International, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and UNICEF, with the support, among others, of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
