GPEI Tools, Protocols and Guidelines

The global effort to eradicate polio has been one of the largest public health initiatives in history. The Global Polio Eradication Initiative is composed of a large workforce of frontline vaccinators, technical and programme staff in all corners of the world.  To eradicate polio we must utilise lessons learnt, best practice, and new research to reach and vaccinate every child.
