Rotary is especially dedicated to ending polio and since 1979 its members have donated money, lobbied governments, provided practical support to deliver polio vaccines and volunteered at national immunisation days in all corners of the world.
Thanks to Rotary and its partners, there are now just 3 polio-endemic countries (Afghanistan, Nigeria, Pakistan), the lowest in human history. Although Britain has not seen polio for many years, it is vital we continue our efforts to eliminate the disease worldwide so it can never return.
