Financial Resource Requirements

The Financial Resource Requirements series (FRR) provides an overview of the external funding – required and currently available – to finance activities planned by the GPEI for the 2013-2019 period to eradicate all remaining polio disease – due to both wild and vaccine-related polioviruses and prepare for the post-eradication era in keeping with the Polio Eradication and Endgame Strategic Plan 2013-2018 and its four objectives.  The budgets that underpin the FRR are prepared jointly by the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF and the national governments. The external funds to finance the activities primarily flow through WHO and UNICEF with funds for inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) introduction flowing through Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. The FRR provides an overview of the 2016-2019 budget and the details for the current year, including external funding requirements, supplementary immunization activities schedule, social mobilization costs, laboratory, surveillance and running costs, technical assistance, and Gavi’s requirements. The FRR is updated regularly, based on evolving epidemiology, program priorities and available funding. More
