Reflect on the lecture and reading “Polio eradication: Mobilizing and managing the human resources”. Then, thinking about your own region, respond to the following questions:

  • Are their organizations in your area, such as Rotary, that might be willing to volunteer to assist with global health programs? Have they helped with vaccination programs before?
  • How could you reach out to them to initiate a partnership to develop committed volunteers?
  • What are the pluses and minuses of relying on volunteers to carry out essential program activities?

Post your results in the discussion.
