Rotary International News Other News: Club Calendar

Today, more than 400 scientists, doctors and technical experts from 75 countries launched the Scientific Declaration on Polio Eradication. The declaration’s launch coincides with the 58th anniversary of the announcement of Jonas Salk’s revolutionary polio vaccine.

The world is closer than ever to eradicating polio, with just 223 cases in five countries last year. To capitalize on this time-limited opportunity to end the disease, a wide range of experts have signed the declaration to emphasize the achievability of polio eradication and endorse the Eradication and Endgame Strategic Plan, a new strategy by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) to reach the end of polio by 2018. The scientists and experts signing the declaration include Nobel laureates, vaccine and infectious disease experts, public health school deans, pediatricians and other health authorities. For additional information about the Scientific Declaration or to view a full list of signatories, please visit the Emory Vaccine Center Website.

The Four Way Test
Of the things we think, say or do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
