Mobilizing support from governments and international partners

The success of the Western Pacific Region in attaining and maintaining its polio-free status is built on the political commitment of its Member States. However, eradication could not have been achieved without the assistance of the international community. Partnerships are essential in ensuring that sufficient resources are available to maintain the Region's polio-free status.
