Our generation stands on the brink of eradicating the second human disease in history. Polio – a disease which has disabled millions and pulled individuals further into poverty – has been reduced by 99% over the past 30 years, and its end is within our reach.
Global efforts have delivered incredible progress: immunizing more than two billion children and saving more than five million children from life-long paralysis or death.
The critical work of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) is constrained by a US$590 million funding gap, putting this historic opportunity at risk.
Join us and all those at the GPEI help build the public support needed to help make the end of polio a reality. Sign their online petition now!
