On the heels of historic success against polio in Nigeria and across Africa, the global effort to end polio is receiving an additional $40.4 million boost from Rotary to support immunization activities and surveillance. Rotary has earmarked $26.8 million of the total for African countries, to ensure that the disease never returns to the continent; $6.7 million to Pakistan, one of two countries where polio has never been stopped; $5.3 million to India; and $400,000 to Iraq. Rotary provides grant funding to our polio eradication initiative partners UNICEF and the World Health Organization, which work with governments and Rotary members in polio-affected and high-risk countries to plan and carry out immunization activities.
