It's time for Rotarians and Rotaractors around the world to raise awareness about our work to eradicate polio forever. If we remain committed to making progress, polio will be the second human disease ever eradicated. 

A polio-free world is possible, but we can achieve it only by taking action together. 

In our fight to end polio, we have used our collective strength to defeat this devastating disease in almost every part of the world. As we know, the African region has been certified free of the wild poliovirus - proving that eradication is possible even under very difficult circumstances. The wild poliovirus still paralyzes children in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and as long as polio exists everywhere, it remains a threat everywhere. 
This year, online events and activities will allow us to expand our reach even more and inspire others to join us. For World Polio Day we can start with virtual event ideas, social media posts and photos, the World Polio Day Toolkit can also help to plan and promote the activities of different Clubs.
