Discussion points and conclusions are presented from a 1998 technical meeting on the use of Lot Quality Assurance Sampling (LQAS) in polio eradication programs. The meeting was a response to donors organizations' interest in strengthening monitoring and evaluation of polio eradication activities and applying rapid assessment tools in the health sector. LQAS was chosen as the focus of the meeting due to its potential for use in rapid assessment and the relative lack of widespread experience with the method. Participants discussed strengths and limitations of using LQAS as a rapid assessment tool to monitor polio eradications activities and other immunization activities.
