Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for over 30 years, and our goal of ridding the earth of this disease is in sight. We started in 1979 with vaccinations for 6 million children in the Philippines. Today, Afghanistan and Pakistan are the only countries where polio remains endemic.
To support this effort, Rotary Club of Singapore participated in the District 3310 Step Up To End Polio Challenge. We have raised over US$11,770 from Rotarians and friends in the 8 weeks of this challenge. Around 30 participants walked a sum total of 12 million steps in these 8 weeks to raise awareness and funds.
Our senior Rotarian PP Dr Yap Lip Kee walked 1.17 million steps, the highest in our club and the 3rd highest in the Rotary International District 3310.
The project was led fabulously by Rtn Adnan Ahmed Ansari and supported by Rtn Roland Jossi, Rtn Vinit Sarangdhar and Rtn Sonali Sinha.

Notwithstanding the constraints caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, District 3310 has undertaken several activities to raise awareness of Polio and to help garner support for our continuous efforts to get rid of Polio which was once a dreaded disease.

#RotaryOpensOpportunitiesToday we celebrate World Polio Day - 24 October 2020.
Looking back, Rotary Eclub of 3310 kicked off this event back in 2017 by inviting Polio Survivor PP John Soe to share the Countdown to History. WHO has now declared that the world is free of wild polio, except two countries - Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Today, 19 million people are walking on earth who would otherwise have been paralysed. An estimated 650,000 cases are now prevented each year. Since 1988, 3 billion children received oral polio vaccine (OPV). In 2019 alone, more than 430 million children in 40+ countries were vaccinated using 1.2 billion doses of oral polio vaccine (OPV).
Eradicating polio for good requires eliminating both wild and vaccine-derived poliovirus. This year there are 302 cases of circulating vaccine-derived polio in 12 countries in Asia and Africa, exceeding the 121 cases of wild poliovirus in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The world needs to continue using the oral polio vaccine (OPV) for both wild and circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus.
Immunization and surveillance activities must remain the cornerstone for total eradication of this dreaded disease. We must continue to rapidly detect a potential re-introduction or re-emergence of the virus. Only when both the wild polio and vaccine-derived viruses are gone, can we safely say that Rotary’s job is finally done.
Until then, we need to continue to be viligence and work together in our journey to completely eradicate polio from this world; only the second disease after smallpox. 💪
