Polio Plus is Rotary's flagship program. Rotary has partnered with the World Health Organization, US Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, and UNICEF to work toward the eradication of Polio. Rotary was founded in Chicago in 1905 as the world's first volunteer service organization. Rotary clubs are nonreligious, nongovernmental, and open to every race, culture, and creed.
