WORLD POLIO DAY CELEBRATIONS 2022 – 24th October 2022

World Health Organization, Rotary International and polio experts, continue the decades-long collaboration against polio.

Since the landmark resolution for the worldwide eradication of polio was adopted in 1988 at the 41st World Health Assembly, global efforts have achieved a more than 99.9% decrease in polio cases. As many as 20 million children have been spared disability and are walking today. The theme for this year, “World Polio Day 2022 and Beyond: A healthier future for mothers and children”.

We joined the celebrations with community vaccinations, held a walk and hosted a Polio Movie Night at Kabojja International School together with the Gaba Road Corridor Clubs and District 9214 at large. A great appreciation to all our partners in service who joined this cause to support the eradication of Polio in the world.
