End Polio Now

Racine Rotary End Polio Now

On an international level, Rotary has been instrumental in nearly eliminating polio from existence. Since the mid-1980s, Rotary International teams have inoculated millions of children in efforts to wipe out the disease. As of August 2020, after 3 years of zero polio cases, Africa was declared Polio free! A very important milestone in the fight for a Polio free world. Only two countries, Pakistan & Afghanistan, still experience outbreaks and the effort continues.

Rotary International is committed to six major humanitarian areas: promoting peace; fighting disease; providing clean water, sanitation and hygiene; saving mothers and children; supporting education and growing local economies. (See more at: Endpolio.org)
