With all the wonderful things happening in the Rotary world, polio eradication will continue to be Rotary’s highest priority. Many exiting things are happening and the end goal has been planned.
"In an extraordinary joint statement by the Chairs of the main independent, advisory and oversight committees of the GPEI, (Global Polio Eradication Initiative) the Chairs urge everyone involved in polio eradication to ensure polio will finally be assigned to the history books by 2023.
The authors are the chairs of the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on immunization (SAGE), the Independent Monitoring Board, the Emergency Committee of the International Health Regulations (IHR) Regarding International Spread of Poliovirus and the Global Commission for the Certification of the Eradication of Poliomyelitis (GCC). 
The Endgame Plan through 2018 has brought the world to the brink of being polio-free.  The joint statement urges everyone involved in the effort to find ways to excel in their roles.  If this happens, the statement continues, success will follow.  But otherwise, come 2023, the world will find itself exactly where it is today:  tantalizingly close.  But in an eradication effort, tantalizingly close is not good enough. 
The statement therefore issues an impassioned plea to everyone to dedicate themselves to one clear objective:  to reach that very last child with polio vaccine."
District 6380, starting the new Rotary year July 1, 2019 has decided to raise our annual club’s PolioPlus commitment from $2,000 to $2650 per year. Many clubs are already exceeding this goal but there are also clubs that need to get focused better.
As Rotary clubs we need to create the awareness of polio eradication in our community. One of the ways is to have a PolioPlus fundraiser. Also, as a suggestion $100.00 (tax deductible) contribution from each member, which goes towards your club’s PolioPlus commitment. It is of vital importance that we as Rotarians understand our promise to the children of the world.
As your District Polio co-chairs we are here to help and will be pleased to present our Polio PowerPoint presentation as a club program.  Please invite us to get your club up date.
