Today is World Polio Day. World Polio Day was established by Rotary International over a decade ago to commemorate the birth of Jonas Salk, who led the first team to develop a vaccine against poliomyelitis. Did you know that today is also United Nations Day. Celebrating United Nations (UN) Day can be done by getting to know about the UN. Recently, access to the Internet was declared a basic human right. This declaration ensures that everyone has access to the world wide information and communication network.
