THE STORY:

Polio Plus

Polio Plus, the most ambitious program in Rotary's history, is the volunteer arm of the global partnership dedicated to eradicating polio. For more than 20 years, Rotary has led the private sector in the global effort to rid the world of this crippling disease.

Today, PolioPlus and its role in the initiative is recognized worldwide as a model of public-private cooperation in pursuit of a humanitarian goal. The PolioPlus program helps Rotary fund operational costs, such as transportation, vaccine delivery, social mobilization, and training of health workers, and support surveillance activities.

Each immunization costs about 75 cents to produce and deliver with the help of Rotary and the World Health Organization.

* Thanks to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Every dollar raised for the Polio Plus will be matched dollar for dollar.
