Progress in Polio Eradication 1985: Polio in 125 countries with 325,000 cases / yr = 1,000 / day! 2010: Polio now endemic in 4 countries with + / - 1,000 / yr The Impact of Rotary!
2009 Global 1,604 cases 2010 Global 1,294 cases
India on verge of polio eradication 96% (21) 88 % (42) 60 % (144) Polio travels without a passport!
2009 = 741 / 1, 604 cases 2010 = Just 42 / 1,294 cases “ It it can be done, it must be done ” 2011 = Just 1 case in INDIA!!!!!
Success is due to the new revolutionary Bivalent oral polio vaccine (bOPV) And sustained effort of Rotary
One single positive case of polio paralysis is an EPIDEMIC as it means it has affected 250 children already!
By participating in polio sNIDs We do not become a man of success but rather become a man of value.
Since 1988, Rotary has contributed $ 800 million (11% of global budget & 64% of private sector contribution) Rotary’s public advocacy resulted in $ 5 billion for polio from private World contribution 1988 – 2010 : Total $ 7.94 billion for polio
For 2011 - 2012 Funding gap is $ 720 million for core running costs, all sNIDs and emergency outbreak response. It costs around $1 billion per year to run vaccination programs worldwide.
External funding requirements 720 m $ for INDIA (230 – 240 m$ each year)
“ It's very clear: This is a ‘make-or-break time’ for polio eradication." The only reason why polio may now fail to get eradicated is LACK OF FUNDS
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Donation Challenge to Rotary Foundation As of 30 June , Rotarians have raised $ 160 m for Rotary's $200 m Challenge He believes in Rotary! $355 m received by Rotary in challenge grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. $200 m Rotary needs to raise before 2012 to match this challenge $555 m This TOTAL will directly support NIDs in India
Since 1996 1) S tipends for millions of volunteers 2) S alaries for technical advisers 3) S urveillance 4) S ocial mobilization 5) O perational support Where do Rotary funds for polio go? Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought.
ROTARY INTERNATIONAL Polio Eradication program is the largest public health program in history of mankind . 2 billion children are immunized to date!
60 lakh children are walking free ( not permanently paralyzed ) due to Rotary’s efforts since 1985!
Do you know what will happen if the world fails to eradicate polio? 99% success is 100% failure. > 1 crore of the world’s children will be paralyzed in the next 40 years
We are this close to ending polio As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.
