The signature project of The Rotary Foundation is the Global Polio Eradication Initiative with partners WHO, the centre for Disease Control and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The progress towards the “End Game” has been exceptional. During the next Rotary year it is expected that Nigeria will be declared polio free. The program is still on track for the world to see the last case of polio in 2018.
“Rotary members in Australia have played a significant part in the history of polio eradication,” said Dr. Scott at the District Changeover Dinner in June 2015.
