Building Global Health Capacity Through Polio Eradication

In this series of seven longform analyses, the CSIS Global Health Policy Center examined public health interventions for which the U.S. government provided significant backing, either financially or through technical support. Each section examines an individual asset, explaining what it is, how it is contributing to polio eradication and to addressing other health issues, and what some of the challenges are to their continuation. Overall, the site highlights the formidable leadership and support CDC and USAID have offered toward eradication. It also illustrates how polio assets already are aiding countries in preventing, detecting, and responding to disease outbreaks and what would be needed for them to be sustained into the future.
