  • When Rotary launched its PolioPlus program in 1985, there were over 350,000 cases of polio each year- 1,000 cases per day, in over 125 countries. Today ( click again ), annual cases of polio paralysis are down to less than 1700 a year—that’s a 99% reduction in the number of infections worldwide. In 2008, only four countries remain polio endemic – India, Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan. This is the lowest number in history and, more importantly, polio only circulates in limited geographic areas in each country.
  • The world now has its best chance to eradicate polio. It has been documented that over a 20 year period, the cost of controlling and treating polio would be higher, in human suffering and dollars, than the cost of finishing eradication. Over 200,000 children a year would be paralyzed, if we don't finish. Our efforts over the last 20 years would be wasted. We cannot let that happen. We cannot fail. We must End Polio Now! I ask you to support Rotary’s US$200 Million Challenge.
