Polio update from the Rotary #14 Newsletter


It is worthy of note there are only 23 new cases of polio thus far for 2015. Last year there were 64 new cases by this date. The system utilized to eradicate polio has proved useful in other areas as well. The infrastructure used to eradicate polio has helped when catastrophes occur, such as the earthquake in Nepal, by utilizing local knowledge and systems to plan, monitor and respond where help is needed.
