The Global Polio Eradication Emergency Action


Emergency Action Plan 

The Global Polio Eradication Emergency Action Plan aims to boost vaccination coverage in Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan, the three remaining polio endemic countries, to levels needed to stop polio transmission.

Developed in coordination with country national emergency plans, the global plan builds on India’s success in stopping polio transmission and outlines a range of new strategies and initiatives to better support eradication efforts, including:

  • Intensified focus on worst-performing areas of Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan to increase vaccination coverage by end of 2012 to levels needed to stop transmission;
  • New approaches tailored to each country to tackle persistent challenges and improve polio vaccination campaign performance;
  • Heightened accountability, coordination and oversight to ensure success at every level of government and within every partner agency and organization;
  • Surge of technical assistance and social mobilization capacity.

Anti-polio-drive-to-begin-in-Peshawar-on-January-5




PESHAWAR: A three day anti-polio drive will begin in Peshawar on January 5 and security will be provided to volunteers.

Deputy Commissioner Peshawar, Javed Marwat told Geo News that polio drops would be administered to 800,000 children. 18,000 teams have been formed for the anti-polio drive who will go from door to door administering the drops.

At least 8 volunteers of the anti-polio drive were killed in Karachi and parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa leading to the suspension of the drive by UN agencies in December 2012.
