Abstract
After global eradication of smallpox, the World Health Organization(WHO) launched a campaign to eradicate polio. In 2008 December, Global Polio Eradication Initiative(GPEI) Strategic Plan 2009-2013 was declared, and movements to reorganize the acute flaccid paralysis(AFP) surveillance were also started in South Korea. The Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention set out to intensify the AFP surveillance by rearranging the centers to hospitals with neurology and pediatric neurology specialists, actively promoting surveillance, and modifying the transportation system of samples. This article provides a comprehensive review of newly reorganized AFP surveillance.
