With respect to polio eradication efforts, for example, a major selling point to political leaders was the potential post-eradication cost savings. But if we had known that immunization would likely need to be continued even in the post-eradication era, would the level of political commitment have been the same? If we had been more aware of the post-eradication challenges, would we have favored disease control rather than eradication and would development of the health infrastructure have been a better overall investment?

In anticipation of polio eradication in the early 1990s, for example, polio research laboratories were told they would be soon required to cease poliovirus research and destroy all virus and infectious DNA stocks. The unfortunate consequence was that many research programs that could have contributed valuable information on new vaccines, new antiviral drugs, and animal models for virus transmission were shut down. If new vaccines or antiviral therapies are to be developed to cope with unforeseen viral challenges, basic scientific research on viral-host biology must continue even after eradication.

27 INTRODUCTION The ways by which these four pieces of information fed back into the program strategy demonstrate the need to constantly analyze information generated in the field in order to adjust eradication strategies. The global polio eradication initiative is based on lessons learned from polio eradication in the Americas. However, global implementation of all of the various components of the strategy proven so effective in the Americas has been very slow. Surveillance was introduced very late in the program, and only recently have mopping-up operations been included as an essential part of program operations.
