Going viral?

Polio immunisation campaigns face a challenge in Pakistan

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinEditorial

Abstract

The incidence of reported polio cases tripled in Pakistan in 2014, despite national and global polio eradication programs, while internal unrest adds further roadblocks to Pakistan’s efforts to eradicate the disease. This raises serious concerns for the health of children, and signals a failure to achieve worldwide eradication of polio as adopted by the World Health Assembly (WHA) in 1988.
