Polio and the PHEIC

I've been asked about this subject a number of times recently so just wanted to remind you that I wrote a comprehensive blog about the situation, who can have vaccine, who has to pay for it and how you obtain the ceritificates etc. back in June 2017.  To see this information click HERE

The 18th meeting of the Emergency Committee (EC) under International Health Regulations (IHR) 2005 has recently been held and guidance now applies to Afghanistan, Nigeria, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea and Somalia. 

Just a reminder that the Global Eradication Programme has some excellent information on it's website HERE and this map resource will give you the latest information about the polio cases and more!
