PEI and the new Afghanistan


The role of recent developments on polio eradication initiative1

Facilitative factors

BPHS program: Improved routine EPI coverage, due to better detection, supervision, and coordination

GAVI input and strategy: improved EPI by targeting hard to reach areas

Reconstruction of clinics: Brought routine EPI to areas previously served with much difficulty by outreach teams.

Greater involvement of women health workers in Polio SIAs

Challenges

Multiplicity of health providers

Fast expansion of service with few trained heath staff

Inadequate capacity of MoPH to coordinate all of the available inputs and to monitor the quality of outputs

Returning refugees and the annual movement of nomads
