Combined meeting at Clio’s on Rosemount at Nambour Rotary, Tuesday 29 September 2015
Jenny Horton gave us a very inspiring talk on polio eradication.
In 1978 two people, one a Nambour accountant, started things moving.  Now there are just 41 cases in the world, 32 in Pakistan and 9 in Afghanistan.  Nigeria was delisted two days ago.
Rotary has given 1.33 billion dollars towards this cause. 
Because of the Polio infrastructure this was able to be used to eradicate the recent Ebola crisis, which took three and a half months.   They are going to use their knowledge and learned skills so that the knowledge is not wasted once Polio is fully eradicated.
