CDC’s “Our Global Voices”: Rotary and CDC — Partners in Polio and Beyond
W. William Schluter, director of CDC’s Global Immunization Division, discusses Rotary International’s efforts to eradicate polio through the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), as well as partnerships between CDC and Rotary to address other public health issues, “such as the provision of basic health services and access to clean water and sanitation.” Schluter concludes, “We can continue to make strides in public health like reducing health disparities, eliminating and eradicating vaccine-preventable diseases, improving access to safe water, and so much more thanks to partners like Rotary International” (6/9).
