NEW YORK (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is pledging $100-million to help fight polio around the world.

The Seattle-based Gates Foundation says the mayor is set to announce the donation to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative Thursday.

The group has a six-year plan to eliminate polio.

Polio is a vaccine-preventable disease that has been eradicated in most countries, but still causes paralysis or death in Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
