The End of Polio Is Near

“We are within grasp of declaring the end of polio worldwide,” Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard said end October, at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Perth. During that meeting, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, Nigeria and Pakistan, along with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, pledged over $100 million in new funds to stamp out the last 1% of the disease that has not been eradicated yet.

Help put an end to this disease and save children’s lives by contributing to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.
