Together, We End Polio

With your help, we can end polio for good.



World Immunization Week

24-30 April

Spread Awareness. Get Vaccinated. Save Lives.

Our work on polio eradication is proof that vaccines save lives. 3 billion children have been vaccinated against polio and the cases of polio have been reduced by 99.9% since 1988. But we know the job is not done until every child is vaccinated, and polio is stopped for good. Help us share the message that #VaccinesWork.

I am from a generation who has witnessed the devastating effects of polio. When I discovered how close we were to eradicating polio, I was very motivated to be a part of this movement. It is so rare when you can accomplish something so spectacular.
