Abstract: The meeting comprised representatives from the 18 countries of the European and Eastern Mediterranean Regions of WHO that participate in Operation MECACAR to interrupt poliovirus transmission in these formerly endemic countries, together with representatives of partner organizations. The meeting reviewed progress and planned the implementation of the poliomyelitis eradication strategies in 1997. The countries reported successful implementation of national immunization days (NIDs) in 1995 and 1996, and steady progress toward enhancing surveillance. The major recommendations of the meeting covered the need to rapidly strengthen surveillance, to continue NIDs in 1997 (and possibly beyond), to strengthen the laboratory network, to improve communication between the staff of the WHO Expanded Programme on Immunization and laboratory and clinical staff, and to begin planning for certification of eradication. In addition, guidance was offered for countries bordering endemic areas, and on when and how to conduct mopping-up operations
