HealthThree-day anti-polio campaign begins in FATA on Monday

PESHAWAR, Pakistan: A three-day anti-polio campaign in Federally Administrated Tribal Areas (FATA) will be launched from Monday to Wednesday, followed by catch up of missed children under supervision and security.

In the entire FATA and Frontier Regions, 1029179 children below the age of five years will be vaccinated by 4125 teams, comprising 3668 mobile teams, 326 fixed teams and 131 transit teams.

The campaign is focused on reaching and vaccinating every child for ultimate polio eradication.

In a recently held FATA Task Force Meeting at Governor House, Governor Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Engineer Iqbal Zafar Jhagra said “FATA is almost polio free and by ensuring high quality campaigns and reaching out to each and every child across the agencies will make eradication a reality.

At the close of the meeting Governor Khyber Pakhtunkhwa also awarded the cheque of Rs 500,000 to EOC FATA Team pledged earlier for their exceptional performance and all-out efforts in reducing the number of polio cases during 2016.

Prime Minister Focal Person for Polio and Senator Aysha Raza Farooq while reminding participants of targets set for new year said “We have come very close to our goal but this should not slow us down rather we should aim to carry out three high quality campaigns in the new year and defeat the virus completely by March 2017, and ensure that we could sustain it for the next three years.
