Our expertise lies in the supply of safe vaccines, and building trust and motivating parents to vaccinate their children against polio. Vaccine supply UNICEF manages the procurement and distribution of over 1 billion doses of polio vaccines annually, accounting for more than 50 per cent of global oral polio vaccines (OPV).

The rate of poliomyelitis in the vaccinated group was 7 cases percompared with 35 among placebo controls The vaccine was only 60% to 70% protective against paralysis caused by the more prevalent type 1 strain, but it was 90% effective against paralysis caused by the type 2 and type 3 strains.

The polio eradication programme in India is evidence based. It has evolved over a decade from careful analysis of data, collected at the local, block, district, state and national levels.

The data is used to drive communication planning; it shows what is being done well, what is working and what needs to change. The rapid scale up of the response has been accompanied by an increasing emphasis on measurable indicators and results. These include programme monitoring data, behavioural and biological trends data and evaluation of programmes.

The increasing demands on country monitoring and evaluation systems can only be met if better systems are built and supported. A few days ago, Ramesh Ferris took his first ride on a motorbike.

Strengthening routine immunization. As one of its four major objectives, the Polio Eradication and Endgame Strategic Plan calls on countries to strengthen routine immunization, as well as to introduce at least 1 dose of inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) into routine immunization schedules, and withdraw oral polio vaccine (OPV) in a phased manner, starting with type 2-containing OPV.
