A global alliance of UN agencies, bilateral and multilateral organisations, national governments, and civil society organisations, naturally face various pushes and pulls in achieving disease control at a global scale. Here, we explore some of the challenges faced by the GPEI and how the alliance structure and partner roles were tested and evolved over time.
Please take a few moments to review the reading Orchestrating Global Polio Eradication.

Please post your response in the discussion section.
