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
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1999 )
Abstract

The 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

A sub-regional meeting on AFP/polio surveillance and poliomyelitis laboratory issues was held in St Petersburg in July 1999 to discuss the progress made in global and regional eradication of poliomyelitis and the activities of poliomyelitis laboratories, take note of outstanding problems and make recommendations for future activities. Achievements included the successful completion of Operation MECACAR during 1995-1997 and initiation of Operation MECACAR Plus in spring 1998. Participants recommended that WHO and Member States should inter alis accelerate their activities, improve AFP/polio surveillance and increase it in areas of special concern, ensure that stool samples were only processed in accredited laboratories, accredit all poliomyelitis laboratories by the end of 1999, improve communication in the poliomyelitis laboratory network, improve analysis of surveillance and laboratory data, ensure high quality coordination between neighbouring WHO regions, carry out mopping-up immunization in high risk areas and/or high risk population groups, improve the use of national resources and of support from international donors/partners, produce revised plans for action for 2000-2001. and initiate the containment of wild poliovirus strains
