The Global Polio Eradication Initiative is a public -private partnership led by national governments with six partners- The World Health Organization (WHO), Rotary International, the US centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Gavi, the vaccine alliance. Its goal is to eradicate polio worldwide

On 25 August 2020, after four years without a single case of wild polio, the African region has been certified free of wild poliovirus. Decades of extraordinary investment has paid off. … These efforts must continue to prevent wild polio from returning and to end all forms of polio for good – both in Africa and globally.
Every single Rotarian should be incredibly proud of what has been achieved through their ongoing effort.
