INCREASE THE MOMENTUM TOWARDS ENDING POLIO NOW: COME TO THE POLIO SUMMIT IN ABUJA NIGERIA.

The dramatic reduction in the number of polio cases in Nigeria during the past year has received world-wide attention.
Rotary International is hosting a Summit in Abuja Nigeria from 20 -22 September, 2010 to x-ray those factors that have produced the heart-warming results and generate additional and sustainable momentum towards the interruption of the transmission of the wild polio virus in Nigeria this year.
We believe that the experience of Nigeria will make an applicable case study for nailing the coffin on polio in the remaining few endemic countries.

Please visit the Summit web site at http:/www.rotarypolioplussummitnigeria2010.org to view addional information and register.
