Polio Eradication & Endgame Strategic Plan 2013–2018

This document is a comprehensive, long-term strategy that addresses what is needed to deliver a polio-free world by 2018. The plan addresses the eradication of all polio disease, whether caused by wild poliovirus or circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus, while planning for the backbone of the polio effort to be used for delivering other health services to the world’s most vulnerable children. The plan has four objectives: (1) detect and interrupt all poliovirus transmission; (2) strengthen immunization systems and withdraw oral polio vaccine; (3) contain poliovirus and certify interruption of transmission; and (4) plan polio’s legacy.
