When was the last time there was polio in Europe? If you guessed 2002, the year the region was certified polio-free, you were wrong. The last time polio affected a child in Europe was last summer. In 2015, two Ukrainian children were diagnosed with paralytic polio, and, given the way the disease manifests itself, that means many more were likely infected and didn’t show symptoms. At least one Western news outlet deemed the outbreak “crazy” – but the reality is that no place on earth is safe from polio until the disease is eradicated everywhere.

Uniendo America Project Fair

I have just returned from El Salvador where I attended Uniendo America project fair with Central and North American partners. Our district was well represented with 10 participants. It was an honor to be among so many people dedicated to service above self. I am so grateful for reconnecting with old friends and building new and lasting friendships in Central America. - DG Nabil

Rotary Foundation Centennial
Polio can strike at any age but mainly affects children under five. Polio is incurable, but completely vaccine-preventable. In 1985, Rotary launched its PolioPlus program, the first initiative to tackle global polio eradication through the mass vaccination of children. Rotary has contributed more than $1.6 billion and countless volunteer hours to immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. In addition, Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by donor governments to contribute more than $7.2 billion to the effort.
