Overview: Polio is a virus that spreads from person-to-person with the ability to cause paralysis.

In 1988, the World Health Assembly passed a resolution to eradicate polio. At the time, there were 125 endemic countries. Currently wild poliovirus remains in only two countries: Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) is a partnership led by six agencies: WHO, CDC, UNICEF, Rotary, BMGF and GAVI. These agencies work together in key areas of surveillance, vaccination, communication, and research to eradicate polio.

This course utilizes short videos and quizzes to introduce the material and test your understanding.

  • Summarize the current status of polio eradication; and
  • Describe the remaining challenges to polio eradication.
