                   POLIO STATISTICS FOR 2019

                                                 A “High” we did not and Do Not want!!

        As of 19 July 2019, the number of children confirmed paralyzed by wild poliovirus hit 56 cases with 45 in Pakistan and 11 in Afghanistan.  Likely the total number will increase in the next few months as we enter the part of the year when more cases are seen and since there are still positive environmental samples being reported each week in both countries. The better news is that if Nigeria makes it through August 2019 without a case of wild poliovirus caused paralysis it will made the “magic 3 year mark” and Africa could, once again, be declared “Polio Free”.

         Issues, including many that the Global Polio Eradication Initiative has dealt with before in other countries such as India, are being addressed. This dramatically points out that we cannot let our guard down or stop our efforts.  It has been predicted that if we stopped all polio immunizations globally within 10 years there would be approximately 200,000 cases annually---we must not and cannot allow this to happen!   World Polio Day on Thursday October 24 would be a good time to hold an event to educate and inspire Rotarians and our communities to End Polio Now!!

Rotary Leadership Institute
By Linda Avery 
The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a Rotary program of training designed to strengthen Rotary clubs through quality leadership education.  This is intended for all Rotary members interested in potential leadership positions in Rotary.  District 5470 has elected to offer this training at no cost to membership, in the interest of developing as many future leaders in our clubs as possible. 
 
Training is in 3 parts, and upon graduation, you will also be certified to become a RLI facilitator and assist in future trainings.  Training in each section is a stand-alone, so you do not need to take them in sequence.  The District has been divided into quadrants, so it will be easier to have membership attend trainings local to them.  It is the intention of the District Training to have each quadrant offer at least one training in Part I, Part II and Part III each year – and locations will be determined upon request.
