For example (click), most of southern India is polio free as you can see from this map. Great progress was made from 2008 (click) to 2009. The Indian Expert Advisory Committee that met in June 2009 determined that the epidemiologic, virologic, genetic, operational and technical evidence all suggest that India is firmly on the right path to finish eradication. A primary focus will be on improving vaccination activities in the Kosi river area of Bihar and accessing mobile populations moving out of Uttar Pradesh.
This pie chart shows in which countries Rotary makes grants. The majority of funding since 2002 has been spent in the four remaining polio endemic countries: India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria. The balance of funding supports activities in the high risk and importation countries such as Angola, Chad, Ethiopia, Nepal, Niger, Sudan, and others.
This pie chart shows the distribution of polio funds since 2002. As you can see, most of the funding has been granted for operational support; those activities required to get the vaccine in to the mouths of children, followed by surveillance and social mobilization. Since 2002, grant expenditures are just over US$300 million.
