Review of the documentation for certification of polio eradication in southern and central European countries : report on a WHO meeting, Budapest, Hungary 3-6 May 1999
AbstractThe seventh meeting of the European Commission for Certification of Polio Elimination, and third meeting of Chairpersons of National Committees, was held in Budapest, Hungary, from 3 to 6 May, 1999. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the documentation for the certification of poliomyelitis eradication in 15 non-endemic countries of the centre/south of the WHO European Region and to review the plan of action for 199962000 in the light of experience gained. The Commission members reviewed the national committee reports submitted and heard presentations from the national chairpersons. Many of the reports were reassuring that data were or would be forthcoming to make convincing cases for polio elimination. However, the Commission was concerned that some countries had a great deal still to do. Most countries submitted summaries that specified the grounds on which they based their beliefs that polio had been eliminated. With some exceptions, countries undertaking AFP surveillance were reporting low rates and even lower compliance with indicators. Many countries had been able to find data on enterovirus surveillance, but more information would be required on the non-typed strains, the sources of strains, the populations from whom they had been collected, and the quality assurance schemes in place for the laboratories involved
