A world of difference.
Get informed and help make polio a subject of conversation in your community.
Most people have heard of polio but few know that the disease still affects children around the world. You can help by spreading the word.
Every donation helps us obtain the vaccines, transport and materials needed in the fight against polio.
Since 1988, we’ve seen a worldwide reduction in polio cases of 99.9%. Last year we only saw wild polio cases in three countries.
