  1. Development and coordination of the Polio Laboratory Network in the Western Pacific Region of the World Health Organization.

    Article - En anglais

    A multitiered network of polio laboratories, consisting of specialized reference laboratories, regional reference laboratories, national laboratories and, in the case of China, provincial laboratories, was established in the Western Pacific Region of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1992.

    The network currently consists of 43 laboratories within the Region and is coordinated through the WHO Regional Office in Manila.

    As the levels and extent of supplementary immunization and acute flaccid paralysis surveillance activities have increased, so has the work load of network laboratories.

    The total number of stool specimens collected and processed in Polio Laboratory Network laboratories in this WHO region in 1995 exceeded 15,000.

    With the Region now establishing the criteria necessary for certification of polio-free status, it is essential for the Polio Laboratory Network to establish international confidence in its ability to carry out its role in the eradication of polio.
