to the first payment of their 2019 – 2023 pledge, meaning that the total amount released for polio eradication activities is £70 million.
The WHO extends gratitude to Germany

The Global Polio Eradication Initiative would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all donors
who contributed to polio eradication in 2020. This support is critical to ensure that challenges are overcome and the goal of a polio-free world is reached.
