Polio Plus

Rotary is an international community that brings together leaders who step up to take on the world’s toughest challenges, locally and globally. The eradication of polio is one of our longest standing and most significant efforts. Along with our partners, we have helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children against polio in 122 countries. We have reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide and we won't stop until we end the disease for good.
Rotary started the fight against polio in 1979 with a major project to vaccinate 6 million children in the Philippines.
In 1985 Rotary International launched PolioPlus, the first and largest internationally coordinated private-sector support of a public health initiative, with an initial fundraising target of US$120 million.
It wasn’t until 1988 that other global organisations came on board.  At that time Rotary International and the World Health Organization launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. There were an estimated 350,000 cases of polio in 125 countries.
The fight is not yet over.  Your donation is vital to assist the world to win this battle. 
Eradicating polio is the promise Rotary has made to the children of the world.
The Polio Plus Coordinator for D9815 is David Grieve.  David is a member of the Rotary Club of Manningham City.  His contact details can be found through the D9815 website or through the Club Runner app.
