In Afghanistan,
 1 million children were able to receive the polio vaccine in May 2019
 thanks to the work of the GPEI.
 Afghanistan is one of only two countries that continue
 to report cases of wild poliovirus.

 supporters and other Rotary stakeholders across our state 
are invited to express their views 
on our governance priorities across Western Australia.

What governance issues are of particular concern in Western Australia?
