1. The human cost: If we choose to control polio rather than eradicate it, polio could rebound to 10 million cases in the next 40 years.
2. It’s achievable: We have the tools to end polio and the means to reach all children. The new, bivalent vaccine successfully targets the two remaining strains of polio in one dose.
3. It’s a good investment: An independent study published in the medical journal Vaccine estimates the $9 billion global investment in a polio-free world will net an economic benefit of $40 to 50 billion over the next 20 years.
4. It strengthens the system: Our polio eradication efforts have established an active disease surveillance network in all countries that is being used for other health interventions such as measles vaccinations, deworming tablets, and mosquito bed nets.
5. It sets the stage: The ability to reach all children with the polio vaccine is proof of concept that we can succeed on our next major global health initiative.

Sidewalk Talk

At Sidewalk Talk, our mission is to create communities of listeners who return to the same public spaces to practice heart-centered listening all over the world.

Impact in 2019: We transformed lonely sidewalks to public spaces of connection 431 times in 2019. Sidewalk Talk listeners were out impacting lives every single day, sometimes twice a day. We grew to offer ongoing listening events in 89 communities in 2019, from 58. We heard the stories of over 6280 people who reported feeling more connected and happier. Our goal is to hear 11,000 stories in 2020. We referred over 147 people to mental health services.

This is a weekly meeting for The Rotary Club of San Francisco Evening, open to all Rotarians, visiting Rotarians, prospective members and guests.
