After 25 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of
eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root
it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.
Bill Gates is cofounder of Microsoft and co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates
Foundation, along with Melinda Gates and William Gates Sr. The Gates
Foundation strives to expand opportunities for the world’s most
disadvantaged people by collaborating with grantees and partners.
The Gates Foundation is working closely with Rotary
International in the fight to eradicate polio. It recently
awarded US$355 million in challenge grants to Rotary,
which has pledged to raise $200 million in response.
The resulting $555 million will support critically needed
polio eradication activities.
As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in
the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The
stakes are that high.
