Resumen

PORRAS, María Isabel; BAGUENA, María José; BALLESTER, Rosa  y  HERAS, Jaime de las. The European Association against Poliomyelitis and the European vaccination programmes. Dynamis [online]. 2012, vol.32, n.2, pp.287-310. ISSN 2340-7948.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S0211-95362012000200002.

The search for a European response to the problem posed by the outbreak of poliomyelitis in the middle decades of the 20th century resulted in the creation in 1951 of a new organization, the European Association against Poliomyelitis. The internal working mechanisms and the international connections of this Association, in particular with the WHO, were subsidiaries of a specific socio-political context that encouraged this type of consortia. The activities developed by this organization in the 18 years of its existence were decisive for both the articulation and success achieved by European national policies of massive immunization campaigns against the disease.

Palabras clave : Poliomyelitis; European Association against Poliomyelitis; World Health Organisation (WHO); international agencies; polio vaccination; public health; 20th century.
