Rotary is on the verge of eradicating polio from the face of the earth. Rotary started the campaign to eradicate polio in 1986, 32 years after Dr. Jonas Salk invented the vaccination. Other organizations said it could not be done, but Rotary pressed on and the incidences of polio have declined every singe year in the world since and partners in our efforts added.
Today, the planet is 99% free of polio and Rotary as the poster proclaims above, well, "We are just this close!"
Our partners in these efforts include the World Health Organization, unicef, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
