Polio calls for research proposals

GPEI is seeking research proposals to accelerate polio eradication

Research underpins the implementation of the Polio Eradication & Endgame Strategic Plan.  It evaluates the effectiveness of existing strategies, strengthens tactical and operational implementation and pioneers new tools and approaches.  The aim is to protect children from poliovirus in the best and quickest way possible.

The Global Polio Eradication Initiative, guided by its independent body of experts the Polio Research Committee, is issuing an urgent call for research proposals to help secure a lasting polio-free world.
