Pakistan was close to eradicating polio in 2021, but the disease has since made a comeback. In the past year, there have been several cases of polio reported in the country, including one in North Waziristan.

Despite the challenges, Pakistan is determined to eradicate polio. The government and the people of Pakistan are united in their resolve to end this disease. With continued effort, Pakistan will be able to achieve this goal and make the country polio-free.

In addition to the challenges posed by violence, Pakistan also faces challenges in terms of access to remote areas and the reluctance of some parents to vaccinate their children. However, the government is working to address these challenges and is confident that it can eradicate polio in the near future.

The fight against polio is a long and difficult one, but Pakistan is committed to winning. With the support of the international community, Pakistan will be able to eradicate polio and protect its children from this deadly disease.
