Polio has officially been kicked out of Africa. Job well done, to the 1.2 million members of Rotary International!On 2 August 1996, Rotary launched "Kick Polio Out of Africa" — a campaign that leveraged the popularity of soccer (football) to increase public awareness of polio immunizations in Africa. ⚽

This ball in Rotary’s archives, from a National Immunization Day kickoff in Ethiopia in 1997, is signed by John Sever, Paulo V.C. Costa, Herb Pigman, and others who helped to lead the effort. Learn more at End Polio Now.
