With your help, we can finally end polio for good.
Poliomyelitis is a highly infectious disease that most commonly affects young children, under the age of 5.
Most know it as poliovirus. The virus is spread person-to-person, typically through contaminated water. It can attack the nervous system, and in some instances, lead to paralysis. Although there is no cure, there is a safe and effective vaccine – one which Rotary and our partners used to immunize over 2.5 billion children worldwide.
