More than one million Rotary members have volunteered their time and personal resources to polio eradication. Rotary members also provide valuable field support during National Immunization Days through social mobilization and by administering the oral polio vaccine to children. Rotary is the main private sector donor to polio eradication, and will have contributed more than US$ 1.2 billion by 2013.
