Today is the sixth annual World Polio Day, celebrating the progress we've made towards Polio eradication - and acknowledging the need to continue the effort until the job is done.
When Rotary International committed to Polio eradication over 30 years ago, the world saw 1,000 new cases of Polio every day. There have only been 20 cases so far this calendar year. We are "this close" but we need to get to "zero".
