Eradicating polio has been  one of the greatest public health achievements in history and ensures that every child – now and for generations to come – will be able to live a polio-free life.  It was during the term of an Australian Rotary International President, Queensland's Clem Renouf in 1979 that Rotary International first took up the international fight to stop polio at his instigation.
