On the Road to a Polio-Free Nigeria:
It’s been one year since Nigeria’s last reported case of polio. Where are we on the road to a polio-free Nigeria?

Rotary has donated over $207M to end polio in Nigeria.

Over 200,000 health workers immunize 230 million children in Africa.

No Stopping. Nigeria must go 2 more years without a new polio case.

  • 1988 – The Global Polio Eradication Initiative launches. Nigeria hits the road with some 30,000 cases of wild poliovirus.
  • 2014 – Nigera records its last polio case for the year on 24 July.
  • 2015 – The World Health Organization may remove Nigeria from its list of polio-endemic countries this year.
