Rotary Makes the News for World Polio Day

The Sydney morning herald today features an article co-written by Bill Gates and Prime Minister Julia Gillard, about the challenge to eliminate polio from the planet.  The relevant paragraphs to Rotary in this excellent article are:

"The global call to eradicate polio was made in 1988, and it has a deeply Australian history. It was an Australian Rotarian, Sir Clem Renouf, who laid the foundation for the establishment of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, the public-private partnership in charge of this campaign.

Rotary has been a critical partner in the initiative for more than 20 years, and it has shown how committed individuals banding together can become leaders on a global issue. In partnership with national governments, the global initiative has reduced the number of polio cases by 99 per cent over this time."
