The Synthesis and Translation of Research and Innovations from Polio Eradication (STRIPE).

STRIPE is a research collaboration across eight global institutions. Our aim is to map, synthesize, and disseminate lessons learned from the global polio eradication initiative to help advance population health in remaining polio endemic and at-risk countries, and facilitate the effective implementation of future health programs and health systems strengthening activities globally. Join the community by signing up for our mailing list to receive news, updates, and resources from the STRIPE community.
