Rotary has maintained a commitment to end polio in the world.  It has been a focus since 1979 of Rotary International. Our organization is winning the fight against Polio.  You can learn more in this video!

Here are some facts about what Rotary has done to fight Polio in the world:

  • In 1979, Rotary began a project to immunize six million children against polio in the Philippines. This led to Rotary making polio eradication its top priority.
  • In 1988, Rotary began the PolioPlus campaign with an initial fundraising pledge of $120 million.
  • Providing vitamin A supplements during polio immunization has averted an estimated 1.5 million childhood deaths since 1998 – the "plus" in PolioPlus
