POLIO PLUS SOCIETY FORM
Dear Polio Eradication Warriors,
No new Wild Polio cases reported this week. See attached report.
What is that Polio Picture? The Fight against falling immunization rates – In Senegal last month, African heads of state came together at the Forum on Immunization and Polio Eradication in Africa to reaffirm their commitments to tackle declining immunization rates and the resurgence of polio across the region. To ensure vaccines safely reach each child, specific strategies must be deployed in every country and sub-region, dependent on conflict zones and political climate. With careful planning and political commitment, investment in routine immunization efforts, and a focus on restrengthening health systems across Africa, we can improve efforts to end polio and other vaccine-preventable diseases.
A Win Against Polio is a Win For Global Health!
- January 13, 2023 marks 12 years since the last case of wild poliovirus in India – a remarkable public health success. “It seemed impossible until it was done!” – Dr Hamid Jafari, Director of Polio for WHO’s Eastern Mediterranean Region, said reflecting on his time eradicating polio in India and what lessons we can take from this to address the final challenges for achieving eradication in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Foundation Minute Welcome to Week 4 of RI’s Month of Vocational Service.
The Rotary Club of Edmonds Daybreakers is driving change for women in Cambodia.
According to Bill Taylor, the club’s international service chair, the Edmonds Daybreakers has joined a group of 14 Rotary Clubs from seven different Rotary Districts around the globe — including the U.S., Thailand, Ireland and Australia — to improve the lives of women in two Cambodian villages, through a RF Global Grant.
The project will involve construction of about 350 washroom toilets at a cost of about $220,000. A washroom toilet is an engineer-designed, septic-tank toilet but is built wider so there is extra space for women to bathe themselves and their children in a safe and dignified space. According to a Daybreakers Rotary press release, violence against women when bathing in the open or using the “bush toilet” is an issue.
“As a test run for this major project, we worked with a Rotary team led by Rotary Port Phillip (in Melbourne, Australia) and supported by the Rotary Foundation and a District 9800 World of Difference team to complete the restoration of over 40 standard toilets to become washroom toilets,” Taylor said. As part of the new project, the Edmonds Daybreakers will work with a partner Rotary Club in Cambodia – Rotary Sangke Battambang. The two-phase project will also include the engagement of two Cambodian not-for-profit organizations — Cambodia Clean Water and Toilets Project and Build Your Future Today –as the prime links with the villages. The project has been approved for financial support from the Rotary Foundation, which “required a significant amount of detail, rigor and justification based on an assessment of what the villagers see as a priority,” Taylor said.
