Polio Information System project

Data and information relevant to Polio eradication analyses exist in various formats from different sources. They include Acute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP) cases, laboratory indicators, immunization campaigns, quality of immunization campaigns, human resource allocation and routine immunization coverage rates.
Overtime, few processes has been established to collect on a regular basis some of these datasets from the countries through regional offices but most of the data are still received and stored in heterogeneous Access or Excel files at WHO Headquarters. Despite a few information systems have been built over time by the WHO Polio department to automate the processing of some of those datasets, there is no single repository of harmonized data allowing getting an overall surveillance picture and perform cross cutting analysis.
