Brief Summary:
This study will be used to develop a tool to streamline poliovirus environmental surveillance for the polio endgame and to provide a tool for detecting polio in places where there is no capacity to carry out the gold standard culture-based detection.

Condition or disease

Detailed Description:
This environmental surveillance tool will also include antimicrobial resistance (AMR) genes to describe resistome profile in environmental samples and to better inform us of the potential risks of exposure to these environments

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) detection of poliovirus, enteric pathogens and antimicrobial resistance genes from environmental samples [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 1 year ]
    Evaluate performance of the TaqMan Array Card (TAC) on environmental samples (sewage samples) collected in urban slum area of Mirpur. The primary purpose will be to use TAC to detect and monitor Sabin 1 and 3 polio viruses post SIA.
