"When Rotary courageously stepped up to pursue the dream of a polio-free world, we knew our dream wouldn't be easy.  But since 1988, working with our partners, we've brought worldwide case counts down by 99.9 percent.  However, it's not over until it's over.  It will take courage.  We're going to keep up the funding and keep on the pressure until this fight is finished and no child ever again has to experience the devastating effects of polio.” – John Germ, Rotary Foundation Trustee Chair 2021-22
