DRAFT: Polio Eradication and Endgame Strategic Plan 2013-2018 – current working draft as of 29 March 2013.

As requested by the World Health Assembly in resolution WHA65.5, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) is developing a comprehensive Polio Eradication and Endgame Strategic Plan 2013-2018.

The GPEI has conducted broad consultations with countries, partners, stakeholders, donors, vaccine manufacturers, regulatory agencies and national and international advisory bodies. In November 2012, the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on immunization (SAGE) endorsed the major objectives of the Plan and its associated milestones.

After input from the WHO Executive Board (EB) on 21-29 January 2013, the Plan is in the final stages of consolidation and consultation with Member States.
