Eradicating Polio

End Polio Now

This year, only two countries have reported polio cases caused by the wild poliovirus: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Africa has not seen a case in nearly two years, but our work isn’t done yet. Please join the effort to end the disease that once affected 350,000 children a year. No child anywhere should suffer from this completely preventable disease.

GIVE: Help us reach a polio-free world and donate today. See the Treasurer or Rotary Foundation Chair for a giving form and help today. Additionally, The Florence Rotary Club gives initial proceeds from the "Cool at the Coast" Golf Tournament to the End-Polio-Now fight.

Rotary and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have extended their partnership during the critical endgame phase of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. From 2013 to 2018, every US dollar Rotary commits to polio eradication will instantly become three dollars, thanks to a 2-to-1 match by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Join Rotary in the final push to end polio and help make history today.

ADVOCATE: The fight to end polio is a massive effort that Rotary and its partners cannot do alone. Help secure support from governments, non-governmental organizations, corporations and the public. Your advocacy efforts help ensure that no child will suffer from this crippling disease ever again.
