The End Polio Now Campaign

End Polio NowThe "End Polio Now Campaign" was started over 20 years ago by Rotary International, the aim being to eradicate polio throughout the world. This terrible disease was prevalent everywhere at that time. A huge fund-raising effort by the Rotary movement, the efforts of local Rotarians in administering the vaccine in third world countries and in areas of conflict has now resulted in polio being confined to just four countries. These are Afghanistan, India, Pakistan and Nigeria. The World Health Organisation joined in Rotary's effort and more recently Bill and Melinda Gates have donated many hundreds of millions of dollars with the aim of ensuring that the job is completed. Once eliminated, Polio cannot make a return. There will be a huge Rotary celebration when the work is successfully finished!

Recently £250 million was kindly donated to Rotary by Bill and Melinda Gates.
