Financial Needs

The financial needs of the GPEI represent the direct funding requirements for  polio eradication activities to be implemented by the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance in coordination with national governments as per the four objectives of the Polio Eradication and Endgame Strategic Plan. The financial needs do not include estimations of costs incurred directly by national governments.  In order to ensure the GPEI’s funding requirements are fully financed until eradication, an Investment Case was developed in 2016, updated in 2017.
