Polio is no longer the menace it once was in many parts of the world. But until it is eradicated everywhere, it is still a threat to people anywhere. To find out where we are at in our effort to rid the world of this crippling disease, tune in to our World Polio Day livestream event at 14:30 PDT (UTC-7) from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation headquarters in Seattle.

A really informative event. Well worth watching and sharing with others who think polio is a thing of the past. Thanks to the Gates Foundation for hosting such a highly professional event!
Well worth watching. It was great to see Rotary and all our partners join together. We are at such a crucial time in this campaign. Thank you Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and all participants.
