When polio spread through Australian communities during the 1950s and 60s, the epidemics caused widespread fear and panic. The disease advanced swiftly and attacked indiscriminately; schools were shut down and public spaces closed as parents tried to protect children against this potentially fatal disease. Now, thanks to global collaboration between Rotary International, governments, local communities and numerous civil society organisations, polio is endemic in just four countries and more than 5 million children have been saved from life-long paralysis or death.


With polio cases reduced by 99%; the world stands on the brink of global polio eradication.


But global eradication efforts are now at risk. The work of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative is currently constrained by a $590 million funding gap, threatening the delivery of its 2011-12 program.


The End of Polio campaign is calling on world leaders to support polio eradication efforts; and building the public support needed to realise the end of this disease.


As Perth prepares to host the largest ever gathering of Commonwealth Leaders in history, the Rotaract Club of Subiaco and Rotary District 9455 invite you to attend The End of Polio Breakfast, to demonstrate your support for the eradication of this debilitating disease:
