Every year, Rotary International spends $150 million on polio eradication. Ever wonder how they decide where to spend that money? Judith Diment, a member of the Rotary International PolioPlus Committee who serves on the grants committee, takes us inside the decision-making process to help us see both how exciting and difficult the process is. Watch the full interview above. Interview with Judith Diment, the Coordinator of Rotary's Polio Eradication Advocacy Task Force/UK National Advocacy Advisor for polio of Rotary International. The following is the pre-interview with Judith Diment. What is your personal or professional connection to polio? I have helped shape Rotary polio advocacy in the UK for more than 20 years. Where are you presently focused? The economic case for investing in polio eradication as an important public health cause. How do we get from where we are to total polio eradication?
