Polio Facts:

Polio is a paralyzing and potentially fatal disease that still threatens children in some parts of the world.

For more than 30 years, Rotary and our partners have driven the effort to eradicate polio worldwide. Today, we have reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent, and just two countries continue to report cases of wild poliovirus: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Last year there were only 7 cases worldwide. 

Because of the efforts of Rotary and its partners, nearly 19 million people who would otherwise have been paralyzed are walking, and more than 1.5 million people are alive who would otherwise have died. 

Since 2007 all funds raised in the fight to end Polio by Rotary have been matched 2:1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, making your donation go much farther in eradicating Polio worldwide.
