Polio

We look forward to the day when polio is a disease of the past.  We are almost there!  There has been a 99% reduction in polio cases worldwide since the first Rotary program to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.  Read more about this amazing public health achievement at Polio and help us fight the fight against polio.
