April 2021: Pakistan polio campaign reaches over 40M children

Pakistan’s anti-polio campaign reached more than 40 million children under age 5 in Punjab, Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (March 29-April 2) and in Balochistan (April 11-15). Balochistan province postponed the start of the campaign by two weeks due to an ongoing strike of government employees. During the campaign, more than 285,000 “Sehat Tahafuz” frontline workers visited families and caregivers, going house-to-house to vaccinate children. Pakistan Polio Eradication Programme; Pakistan Today
