This chapter analyses the late stages of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), and identifies the lessons from this initiative that can be applied in future eradication efforts. These include assessing operational feasibility, engaging with subnational leaders to establish robust mechanisms, sustaining and applying research, operating in insecure and conflict-affected areas, and addressing vulnerabilities in weak health systems.
