CSIS Report Discusses U.S. Role In Transitioning Polio Eradication Assets In Ethiopia
Center for Strategic & International Studies’ “Global Health Policy Center”: Bolstering Public Health Capacities through Global Polio Eradication
The summary of this report by Nellie Bristol, senior fellow, and Chris Millard, research associate and program manager, both at the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, states, “U.S.-funded global polio eradication assets provide valuable health services support in Ethiopia’s hard-to-reach border regions. The assets, including laboratory strengthening, health worker training, and vaccine cold chain support, contribute toward both countries’ health goals, including improved immunization coverage and disease surveillance capacities. The U.S. government should be a proactive partner as the Ethiopian government begins making hard choices about which assets should be continued and how they should be paid for” (2/17).
