Rotary International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have a fundraising partnership that will generate up to US$525 million for polio eradication as the global effort to end this disease enters its critical end-game phase.

Today, only 2 countries (Afghanistan and Pakistan) remain polio-endemic, down from more than 125 countries in 1988. As long as a single child remains infected, children in all countries are at risk of contracting polio.

We really are that close to eradicating this crippling disease.

Hear Bill Gates talking about the work being done to rid the world of this crippling disease...and how close we are.
