International Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years as a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative

In that time, polio cases have been reduced by more than 99.9 percent.

It’s crucial to eradicate polio from the last two countries where it remains endemic and to keep other countries polio-free - Afghanistan and Pakistan. 
If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.
