Partners


The World Health Organization (WHO)

WHO coordinates the major strategic planning, management and administration processes of the GPEI. WHO also coordinates operational and basic research, provides technical and operational support to ministries of health, and manages training and deployment of technical assistance providers. In addition, WHO has a lead role in establishing certification-standard surveillance and serves as secretariat to the certification process.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)

UNICEF procures and distributes polio vaccines for routine and supplementary immunizations; helps country programmes develop communication strategies that are vital to local acceptance of the vaccine; and secures logistics to access hard-to-reach places, including in countries affected by conflict. As a spearheading partner of the GPEI, UNICEF contributes to the development of polio eradication policies, plans of action, training materials and public information, and is an active partner in advocacy and resource mobilization.


Rotary International

Rotary International is the world's first and largest humanitarian service organization, with a global network of 1.2 million members in more than 170 countries. Through its PolioPlus programme, established in 1985, Rotary was the first to have the vision of a polio-free world. Rotary’s primary responsibilities include fundraising, advocacy, and volunteer recruitment.



US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

The CDC deploys epidemiologists, public health experts, and scientists for the GPEI. It also provides funding for the oral polio vaccine and for a wide range of technical expertise and laboratory support. CDC also assists in the development and monitoring of the Global Polio Laboratory Network, and conducts research to facilitate development of post-certification immunization and surveillance policies.
