End Polio Now: How Rotary is helping to eradicate the poliovirus
Wed 22 March 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
In 2012, the World Health Assembly declared the completion of polio eradication a ‘programmatic emergency for global public health’, and this has been 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. (http://www.endpolio.org/)
In January 2017, a group of Rotarians from Kingston Club travelled to India where they took part in the immunisation programme to help keep India polio free.
