The Fight Against Polio

As a Rotarian, I have a keen interest in the fight against polio.  Rotary International for many years, has lead the fight to eradicate polio. Recently, the Gates Foundation has teamed with Rotary in the fight. Details here.
The Wall Street Journal has an interesting and comprehensive article about Bill Gates' work in this complicated effort.  The link is here. (subscription may be required) This type of excellent reporting is why I read the Journal.

The scientific, logistical, and cultural challenges are immense but the payoff is worth the effort.
