Following the Funding: The Global Polio Eradication Initiative

The fight to eradicate polio is led by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, and is supported by generous public and private donors. To fund this life-saving work, in 2013 GPEI hosted a replenishment in Abu Dhabi raising over $4 billion. In the Scorecard, ACTION analyzes donor performance in delivering on these pledges, and provides additional recommendations for pledges to GPEI in the June 2017 replenishment.

This scorecard lists a subset of GPEI donors. Contributions and funding captured here are those from national governments only. Additional funding from multilateral agencies, philanthropies, NGOs and private sector donors to GPEI, though not reflected on this tracker, are critical to reaching the end of polio.

ACTION's contribution recommendation was based on four factors: an analysis of the scale of the pledges made in 2013, in addition to three other criteria: a past history of pledging to GPEI, the past pledge as a percentage of total Official Development Assistance (ODA) levels, and an analysis of political feasibility of continued giving to polio eradication.
