Supplements: WORLD POLIO DAY 2014


The observance of World Polio Day on 24th October has a special significance for Pakistan as we are one of those few countries which are still fighting this crippling disease. This the day therefore is an occasion to reiterate our commitment to make even greater efforts for securing the future of our children from the perils and disabilities caused by Polio.

Polio is a global scourge with the potential to debilitate flower of nations. It is a humanitarian issue requiring co-ordinated supranational preventive and remedial action. Gravely aware that the number of children paralysed by wild polio virus this year was the highest in a decade, my government devised a National Emergency Action Plan 2014 aimed at eradicating Polio from Pakistan that was duly approved by Executive Committee of National Economic Council and fully funded till 2018.
Protecting the children of Pakistan from the crippling disease of polio remains the top most priority of the Ministry of National Health Services Regulation & Co-ordination. The ministry continues to support the provinces in implementing the initiative through ensuring uninterrupted supply of vaccine, logistics to operate the program activities smoothly. To this end the ministry was able to secure necessary resources so there is no delay in holding polio campaigns anywhere in the country.
World Polio Day is a stark reminder that the threat of polio looms and all of us wherever we are in the country must play our role to ensure that our families, communities and the entire country is protected from this disease that can cripple a child for life. We started the journey in 1994 and our struggle continues. No matter how difficult the task, it cannot weaken our resolve to protect our children against this crippling disease.
On the World Polio Day, I would like to assure all that Punjab government will not leave any stone unturned in eradicating polio from the province. Despite multiple challenges, Punjab has made notable progress on its journey to-ward stopping polio virus transmission and eradication over the past years. No isolation of Wild Polio Virus type 3 (WPV3) has been reported since April 2012.
World Polio Day, being observed around the world today, is a stark reminder of the danger posed by polio to the health of our children and provides us an opportunity to gear up our efforts to fight this scourge with unwavering determination and firm resolve.
World Polio Day provides us an opportunity to join the polio eradication community to renew our promise of a polio-free world. During last three years Balochistan performed well to rid of the local virus circulation and remained polio free for almost two years. There is an opportunity for us to solidify gains of our efforts that were hard earned.
