Independent Monitoring Board of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (Tenth Report: October 2014)

The Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s 2013-18 Strategic Plan set a clear first objective: to stop wild polio virus transmission globally by the end of 2014. To deliver this formidable goal, the polio-infected countries and their partners made huge financial and operational pledges to complete the job they had started 25 years previously.

With just weeks to go until the end of 2014, this global target will not be achieved. The virus continues to thrive in two parts of the world that it has never been dislodged from.

Independent Monitoring Board of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, Ninth Report – May 2014

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Eighteen months ago, as 2012 drew to a close, optimism was running high for the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Polio transmission in India had been interrupted. The three remaining endemic countries (Pakistan, Nigeria, Afghanistan) had made significant programmatic improvements. Some believed that success was imminent; that polio would soon be history.
Within a matter of months, this optimism quickly unwound:

• Targeted killing of polio vaccinators in Pakistan shocked the world and created major operational constraints.
