ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Pakistan’s efforts to end polio receive global acknowledgement as the World Health Organization Regional Sub-Committee on Polio Eradication and Outbreak praised Pakistan s historic steps towards polio eradication.

Special Assistant for Health Dr. Faisal Sultan said that the committee members called for intensification of efforts for complete eradication of polio and assured the members that Pakistan was leaving no stone unturned for zero polio transmission.

According to Faisal Sultan, Pakistan is stepping up its efforts in polio-prone districts, and Pakistan is closely monitoring the transmission with Afghanistan.
