Monaco has successfully submitted a draft proposal to the 70th World Health Assembly on a plan for a modification of the World Health Organisation programme for the control of poliomyelitis. The draft was cosponsored by more than 50 States – including all the Member States of the European Union – and was adopted by consensus on May 29.

The Monegasque Government, which has been involved for several years in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, is currently one of the largest per capita donors. HE Carole Lanteri, Ambassador of Monaco, serves as co-chair of the Global Partners Group of this initiative.

Eradication of the disease is now possible and should occur in the years to come if all the partners remain committed, the Government says. From this perspective, the Global Initiative’s work is concentrated on three endemic countries and in about 15 priority states.
