"Every day, 360,000 children are born in the world and to be fully protected against polio, each of them must be vaccinated more than once, but several times, to stop the virus from traveling, every child must be fully vaccinated at the same time, before enough new babies are born to allow the virus to travel again, "she said.

The only way to achieve cachexia is the massive and coordinated scale on which rotational and other health organizations are now operating, using a vast network of systems to deliver approximately 430 million doses of vaccine each year, through massive vaccination campaigns.

"Places with enormous distances, incredibly distant communities, wars, instability, poverty and hundreds of millions of children must be achieved every year," added Moodley.

It is a costly undertaking. It is a task of breathtaking ambition and scope, but Rotary continues to do so.

"Now is the time to do my best to raise funds, raise awareness and be" Inspiration to End Polio Now "- she concluded.
