The Centers for Disease Control is pleased to announce the Informing Global Polio eradication Efforts through Innovative Modeling Approaches to support global polio response activities.
- Estimated Total Program Funding: $1,750,000
- Award Ceiling: $0
- Award Floor: $0
Strategies and Activities
- Inform the development of effective outbreak response strategies for cVDPV2 outbreaks
- Identify optimal poliovirus surveillance approaches post-certification
- Identify surveillance strategies to effectively detect containment breaches
- Support efforts to create a diverse public health workforce with capacity in statistical and mathematical modeling
- Short-term Outcomes
- Improved understanding of the effectiveness of different outbreak response approaches to interrupt virus transmission.
- Improved understanding of the costs of different outbreak response approaches to quickly end outbreaks
- Improved understanding of optimal surveillance approaches to ensure sensitive poliovirus surveillance
- Improved understanding of the costs of optimal surveillance approaches to ensure sensitive poliovirus surveillance
- Improved understanding of surveillance strategies to detect containment breaches promptly and effectively
- Improved workforce capacity for statistical and mathematical modeling
- Intermediate Outcomes
- Improved ability to adapt cVDPV2 model to inform response strategies for outbreaks of cVDPV1 and cVDPV3
- Improved poliovirus surveillance approaches used by global and regional partners
- Improved surveillance strategies for detection of containment breaches used by global and regional partners effectively and promptly
- Improved understanding among US public health agencies about optimal surveillance strategies to detect containment breaches effectively and promptly
- Long-term Outcomes
- Improved policy development and implementation, and vaccine supply management towards cVDPV2 interruption per Goal 2 of the GPEI 2022-2026 strategy
- Increased adoption of policies for cost-effective integration of poliovirus surveillance based on model findings
- Improved data-informed use of strategies to effectively manage US risks around containment by US public health agencies
- Populations in all countries that are under-immunized against poliovirus experiencing circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus outbreaks, countries with wild poliovirus, at high risk of vaccine-related poliovirus transmission after certification of wild poliovirus eradication, or at risk of a containment breach from poliovirus holding facilities (e.g., polio vaccine manufacturers, laboratories).
