In 2015, only 3 areas where Polio remain:
Fewer than 10 cases have been reported in Afghanistan so far in 2015. Strengthening immunization campaigns is key to stopping polio in the country.
Nigeria saw its last polio case on 24 July 2014. The World Health Organization may soon remove Nigeria from the list of polio-endemic countries. When all of Africa goes three years without a case of polio, WHO will certify the region as polio-free.
According to experts, Pakistan will prove the biggest challenge to global eradication efforts, with the country accounting for nearly 90 percent of the world’s cases in 2014. However, we’ve seen recent progress in Pakistan, with the country reporting a near 75 percent reduction in cases in the first half of 2015 compared to the same time in 2014.
On March 27th 2015 the World Health Organization’s South-East Asia region was declared polio-free.
Well over 30 years of the Rotary Polio Plus Campaign has seen Polio eradicated in 122 out of 125 countries by Rotary and it’s partners.

In Market Harborough, our club has supported the campaign substantially over the years and soon you will see our purple crocuses - but why??
Children in countries all over the world get their pinkies (little fingers) dipped in purple paint to show they have been immunised with the 2 drops of vaccine.
Immunisation against polio is given by drops into the mouth. Each dose costs 25p. Immunisation must continue for all children, to maintain the world free of polio. In the UK children are all vaccinated against polio as babies, and that keeps polio away from all of us.
Market Harborough in Bloom volunteers help Rotary by planting the purple crocus bulbs along the millennium mile opposite the memorial gardens.
Thank you to everyone who swam, sponsored, supported and helped in any way for making it a a fantastic
