New end polio now website launches!


By Stella Almond - Posted on 18 September 2012

Rotary has created a virtual home – endpolionow.org – where people can rally together to finish the fight against polio. The website is available in English, with other languages to follow. Key features include:


  • Compelling stories you can share about polio eradication

  • Interactive, dynamic graphics that help you tell the story

  • How your and others’ donations can be used to fight polio

  • How to use your social media status to share Rotary’s polio story and calculate your “social worth”

  • Links to polio communications resources that will help you educate and inspire others to end polio now

“To achieve a polio-free world, Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative need your support to spread the word,” says Robert S. Scott, chair of Rotary’s International PolioPlus Committee. “Together, we must educate and activate individuals, organizations, and most importantly, governments, to keep up the fight to end polio now. Robust and coordinated digital outreach is necessary to reach our goal.”


You are encouraged to visit endpolionow.org, interact with its features, and share it with others through your own websites, blogs, and social media channels.


“We are ‘this close’ to making history by eradicating the crippling disease polio once and for all,” says Scott. “Case counts have never been lower, the number of countries affected has never been fewer – the time to beat polio is now.”
