What is that Polio Eradication Picture? Today's picture is of Judith Diment, Chair of the Rotary International Polio Eradication Advocacy Task Force.  Here she is presenting the new GPEI 2019-2023 Investment Case, calling for concerted global efforts - both political and financial - to ensure that the hard-won gains in the fight to eradicate Polio see us through to the finish line. “Building on past progress and overcoming remaining hurdles requires continued support and (polio eradication) is a sound value-added investment."
