In 1985, Rotary launched its Polio Plus program, the first global initiative to tackle polio through the mass vaccination of children. Rotary has contributed more than $1.5 billion and countless volunteer hours to immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. Wild polio virus is now down 99% and appears in only two countries.
