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) in coordination with national governments.

The financial needs do not include estimations of costs incurred directly by national governments nor do they include the cost of IPV via Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.

In order to ensure the GPEI’s funding requirements are fully financed until eradication and certification, an Investment Case was launched in April 2022 to accompany the new strategic plan for 2022 until 2026.
