Over US$ 14 billion has been invested in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative since its launch in 1988. These contributions have reduced the incidence of polio by 99% and laid the foundations for an infrastructure to be used beyond polio eradication.
Contributions and Pledges to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, 1985-2019
Summary of confirmed funding against the Global Vaccine Summit commitments ( as of 1 April 2016)
Within countries, financial contributions are supplemented by in-kind contributions such as the time spent by volunteers, health workers and others in the planning and implementation of supplementary immunization activities. These contributions are estimated to have a dollar value approximately equal to that of international financial contributions.
In addition to contributions by national governments to their own polio eradication efforts, 52 public and private donors have each given to the global programme.
