Financial Resource Requirements

The Financial Resource Requirements (FRR) provides an overview of the budget for activities planned by the GPEI to eradicate all remaining polio disease and prepare for the post-eradication era. The budget that underpins the FRR is prepared jointly by the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF, Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance and the national governments.

The new 2019-2023 GPEI Strategic Plan was approved by the World Health Assembly in May 2019.

To estimate the cost of sustaining the program through 2023, the GPEI conducted a multi-year budgeting exercise, which concluded that an additional US$ 3.27 billion is needed to fund the US$ 4.2 billion budget. The GPEI has developed a short budget narrative as well as two interactive budget tools: 2020 (annual details) and 2019-2023 (high level details).

In addition to the FRRs, the GPEI also provides updated information on available resources from public and private sector donors against the FRRs.
