Polio eradication efforts in Ethiopia


Since 1988, Rotary International and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) — the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — have worked to wipe polio from the face of the earth. Through the efforts of Rotarians everywhere, the spread of polio has been drastically reduced. Seattle news anchor Penny LeGate reports for Voice of America on one of those hard-working Rotarians, Ezra Teshome, incoming governor of District 5030 (Washington, USA), and eradication efforts in Gondar, Ethiopia.
