Excerpt
The sixth meeting of the Eastern Mediterranean Regional Interagency Coordination Committee for Poliomyelitis Eradication and the Expanded Programme on Immunization was held in the WHO Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean (WHOIEMRO) in Alexandria, Egypt from 3-4 April 2000. It was attended by representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Rotary International, USAID, World Bank, Islamic Development Bank, UNICEF headquarters and regional offices for the Middle East and North Africa (MENARO) and south ~ s i(aRO SA), WHO headquarters, Regional Office and field staff and national officers responsible for the Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) fiom Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan and the Republic of Yemen. The agenda, programme and list of participants for the meeting are included as Annexes 1, 2 and 3, respectively. Dr Hussein A. Gezairy, WHO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean Region, opened the meeting by commending participants on their continued interest, commitment and significant support to poliomyelitis eradication efforts at regional and national levels. He indicated that the meeting would be an opportunity to update all partners on achievements in poliomyelitis eradication in the Region. Dr Gezairy then highlighted a few important developments that occurred during 1999, including acceleration of efforts and improving the quality of immunization campaigns through better planning and use of a strategy of predominantly house-to-house vaccine delivery in order to reach the unreached during the present final phase of eradication. Referring to the epidemiological situation, Dr Gezairy indicated that the observed increase in the number of cases in 1999 was due to a remarkable improvement in surveillance both in coverage and in quality. The regional laboratory network for virological surveillance had also improved significantly, as demonstrated by full or provisional accreditation of all 12 network laboratories, and individual laboratories had improved or maintained the indicators of performance at high levels. Dr Gezairy then pointed out that although achievements towards poliomyelitis eradication had been tremendous, there were still many challenges that faced the programme, including the significant shortfall in the human and financial resources needed to intensify the activities in the last and most difficult phase of the initiative. Other major challenges for some countries remained long-standing wars and political isolation as well as the current ongoing global crisis in supply of oral polio vaccine (OPV). Dr Gezairy stated that the 3-year regional plan of action had been updated with the external resource requirements for poliomyelitis eradication, which reflected the consensus reached on the magnitude, intensity and types of accelerated eradication activities between national authorities of priority countries and partner agencies. He then acknowledged the success being witnessed as a result of the extensive efforts of national authorities and of the partnership and support provided by WHO, UNICEF, Rotary International, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and many other agencies.
