About us

What is One Last Push?

One Last Push exists to bring about the eradication of polio worldwide. Although people may think polio has gone for good, the fact is polio still infects children in hard to reach places in a few corners of the globe and until it is completely eradicated, there is always a risk it could come back.

We’re here to make the final effort to wipe it out completely.

We work closely with the Global Polio Eradication Initiative which was established in 1988 by the World Health Organisation. The Global Polio Eradication Initiative is a worldwide partnership led by national governments and spearheaded by the World Health Organisation, UNICEF, Rotary International and the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.

It’s the biggest public-private health effort in history, involving 200 countries, 20m volunteers and 2.5bn children vaccinated.

What do we want?

In the 1950s, polio was driven out of Europe and the Americas with a cheap and effective vaccine. In 2014, India was declared wild polio-free. In 2020, the entire continent of Africa was declared wild polio-free. This progress is remarkable. But with One Last Push we can finish the job in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and finally consign polio to the history books once and for all.

How are we going to do it?

We need to mobilise citizens to donate a little of their time towards urging their government to act.

We want to urge all organisations, all governments and individuals all over the world to not let up on the One Last Push that’s needed to wipe out this disease.

We are also backing volunteers and health workers everywhere, to help them get the vaccine to every endangered child, even in the hardest to reach places.

Let’s finish what we started

For many of us, polio is already history. Thankfully.

But with One Last Push we can wipe it out everywhere. Forever.

Let’s push our politicians that one bit further so that we can achieve a polio-free world and ensure every child everywhere can escape polio’s crippling effects.
