UNICEF provides a revised market update for oral polio vaccine (OPV) and highlights 2014 country prioritisation requirements. 

From a constrained supply period during the first half of the year against suppressed demand, a maximised production capacity and UNICEF procurement of all available vaccine, UNICEF anticipates improved supply during the second half of the year - as a result of additional awards and production capacity. 

The intensification of eradication activities and the continued risk of polio outbreaks continue to contribute to high demand.
