Polio is a highly infectious disease, which mainly affects children under five years of age, and is also commonly known as infantile paralysis.
Rotary and its partners, including  Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, UNICEF, and the World Health Organization (WHO), have been leading the work of eradicating global polio for more than 30 years, underpleading the PolioPlus initiative, which was the first to embrace the eradication of polio by large-scale polio vaccination.
So far, the Rotary movement has given more than €2 billion and countless hours of work to protect more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries from polio through its members. In addition, Rotary has worked over the past few years with governments in several countries, raising nearly 50 billion euros to invest in Fighting and Eradicating Polio.

Being almost eradicated, it still needs vaccination campaigns to combat outbreaks, which can lead to serious setbacks. That's why the Rotary Club of Albufeira continues with this awareness campaign.
