Rotary Club of Franklin Polio Plus Project

PolioPlus is the flagship international program of Rotary International.  We have worked with many agencies and foundations (notably the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) to eradicate Polio
in the world and have assisted it the raising of over a billion US$.  Currently, only three nations have Polio as a continuing disease.  They are Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nigeria,  Many may not
realize that these PolioPlus drops also contain vaccines to fight childhood diseases configured to the area where the PolioPlus vaccines are administered.  That is the Plus part of PolioPlus. For more information see 2017-18 Club President Judy Chapman.
