GPEI Independent Monitoring Board Publishes 15th Report On Polio Eradication Efforts

Independent Monitoring Board of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative: Fifteenth Report: Every Last Hiding Place
“This is the 15th report produced by the Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI). A separate independent monitoring board (the Transition Independent Monitoring Board, TIMB) reviews progress with the task of planning and implementing measures necessary to secure a completely polio-free world. It also examines actions aimed at ensuring successful transfer of polio assets, innovations developed, and lessons learned to countries’ public health programs and other global health priorities. The TIMB’s second report will be published shortly. … This 15th report of the IMB follows a meeting in late October and early November 2017 with GPEI staff, donors, extended partners, together with health ministers and officials from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nigeria…” (December 2017).
