Strategic plan of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative

Global Polio Eradication Initiative Strategic Plan 2010–2012


The strategic plan for 2010–2012 sets out an aggressive, time-bound programme of work aimed at interrupting wild poliovirus worldwide by 2013. The plan builds on the special 2009 programme of work and incorporates the lessons learnt from 20 years of experience in polio eradication. These lessons underpin the new approaches for achieving each of the strategic plan’s major objectives:

• interrupting wild poliovirus transmission in Asia
• interrupting wild poliovirus transmission in Africa
• enhancing global surveillance and outbreak response
• strengthening immunization systems.

Global Polio Eradication Initiative Strategic Plan 2004–2008

The Global Polio Eradication Initiative Strategic Plan 2004–2008 outlines activities required to:

• interrupt poliovirus transmission (2004–2005)
• achieve global certification and mainstream the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (2006–2008)
• prepare for the Global OPV Cessation Phase (2009 & beyond).

The Strategic Plan reflects the major tactical revisions that were introduced in 2003 to interrupt the final chains of polio transmission, the revised timeframe for certification of eradication, and the decision to stop immunization with oral polio vaccine (OPV) globally as soon as possible after global certification.
