This film depicting the history of the polio eradication effort, from the founding series of piecemeal efforts in 1980 to the highly organized international efforts of today, shows the impact Rotary has had on lives around the world. The 300,000+ polio cases a year has been reduced to a handful in only 2 countries.  
 
For every new polio case there averages 200 carriers who suffer no symptoms and likely will never develop polio. That means the person next to you on an international flight could infect you if they visited one of those two countries, or met with someone who has. So large scale vaccination efforts are required today even though only 2 countries, Pakistan and Afghanistan, have new infections. Viewing this film, which the producer will be attending, provides the money needed to vaccinate 225 children.
