India has not reported a polio case since 2011, thanks largely in part to massive vaccination and surveillance campaigns that led to the country being officially certified polio-free in 2014. Subnational Immunizations Days continue in order keep India polio-free. For the first time, Rotary International staff members worked alongside health workers and volunteers in the field to help with polio eradication efforts. Read one staffer’s experience and see the many images that were captured of this once-in-a-lifetime journey.
