  1. Hello!

    Could you please let me know which Rotary Club Started the Pulse Polio Project in the world. I believe it is Rotary Club of Madras in 1985. Please correct me.

  2. Sudhir Jain says:

    Rtn. Carlos Canseco, who served as RI president in 1984-85 had launched PolioPlus, Rotary’s ambitious program aimed at eradicating polio, during his term as RI president. Polio Plus Project was approved by the Rotary International in the year 1984-85 and adopted from July 1986 by all the Rotary Clubs of the world. Therefore it is very difficult to say which Club started it first.

  3. Thanks a lot.
