Humanity stands on the brink of eradicating only the second human disease in history.
Polio – a disease that has disabled millions and pulled many people further into poverty – has been reduced by more than 99%.
Global efforts have delivered incredible progress: immunising more than 2 billion children and saving more than 8 million children from life-long paralysis or death. And in 2012, the disease was fought back to the fewest cases in the fewest countries in history.
Yet even one child who is paralysed or dies as the result of an easily preventable disease is one too many. We have a unique window of opportunity to end polio for good – all that stands in the way is the political will to make it happen. And in the process, not only will we eradicate a disease, we will prove just what’s possible when humanity works together.
That's why The End of Polio campaign is working with partners such as Rotary International, along with governments and the broader community, to support the polio eradication efforts and make the end of polio a reality.
Together we can create a brighter future for all the world’s children.
