Traveling in Africa and Asia with a polio Outbreak Response Assessment (OBRA) team was an eye-opening experience. None of us ever know what we don't know - managers who don't watch the work being done can’t possibly know what performance gaps exist, and where there are opportunities to support staff and strengthen quality.</p> <p><a href="http://comminit.com/global/content/seeing-what-we-dont-see-experience-supportive-supervision" target="_blank">read more</a></p>

The Part 1 standard operating procedures (SOPs) was endorsed by the World Health Assembly in 2015. The Part 2 SOPs was endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on Immunization and is dedicated to respond to type 2 poliovirus events and outbreaks specifically during the 12-month period following the global withdrawal of type-2 containing oral polio vaccine, as explained below. (Further recommendations were planned to be developed in 2017.) The ultimate objective is to help countries and the GPEI to achieve polio eradication by 2019.</p> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-pdflink"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="http://polioeradication.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Responding-to-a-poliovirus-event-and-outbreak-SOPs-Part-1_EN.pdf" target="_blank">Click here for the 76-page Part 1 in PDF format.</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="http://polioeradication.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Responding-to-a-poliovirus-event-and-outbreak-SOPs-Part-2-Protocol-for-PV-Type-2_EN.pdf" target="_blank">Click here for the 56-page Part 2 in PDF format.</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher"> <div class="field-label">Publisher:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/global/node/319446">Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI)</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Number of Pages:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>76 (Part 1); 56 (Part 2)</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-contact-user-ref"> <div class="field-label">Contacts (user reference):&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> WHO Polio Team </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-link-other-nodes"> <div class="field-label">Related Summaries:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/global/content/responding-poliovirus-outbreak-standard-operating-procedures-sops-new-polio-outbreak-pol">Responding to a Poliovirus Outbreak: Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for a New Polio Outbreak in a Polio-Free Country</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/global/content/polio-eradication-and-endgame-strategic-plan-2013-2018">Polio Eradication and Endgame Strategic Plan 2013-2018</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-source-text"> <div class="field-label">Source:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="http://polioeradication.org/polio-today/polio-now/outbreak-preparedness-response/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">GPEI website</a>, February 15 2017. <em>Image credit:</em> WHO/J.Jalali</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://comminit.com/global/content/standard-operating-procedures-responding-poliovirus-event-and-outbreak-parts-1-and-2" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://comminit.com/global/content/standard-operating-procedures-responding-poliovirus-event-and-outbreak-parts-1-and-2#comments Global Guides and Manuals Materials Person-to-Person News/Information Immunisation and Vaccines United Nations Risk Management UNICEF World Health Organization Global Polio Wed, 15 Feb 2017 16:02:06 +0000 WHO Polio Team 9487173 at http://comminit.com
