    Since 1985, Rotary International, through its PolioPlus program, has been working tirelessly alongside the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control, UNICEF, the Bill and Melissa Gates Foundation, and a host of other volunteers to eradicate polio.

    The End Polio Now campaign’s slogan is that we are “this close” but still have to keep fighting the fight until there are no more cases of polio anywhere.  At this year’s Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, Rotarians from around the world celebrated over 30 years of the PolioPlus program.  Among the attendees were Madison Rotarians Sandy and Amy Patel who took time to remind us that we are “this close” to the eradication of polio forever!
