Polio-free Pakistan is our national goal: PM

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif says a polio-free Pakistan is our national goal.

In a tweet on Friday, he said Pakistan is one of few countries that still have polio cases, which is unfortunate.

He said federal and provincial governments should do their best to eradicate polio virus as a collective mission.

He appealed to parents to cooperate with polio teams.

The Prime Minister said with access to several areas of the country virtually cut off due to flash floods, this anti-polio campaign has become all the more challenging. However, complacency is not an option.

He thanked Pakistan’s global partners, particularly Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for their support in eradicating polio.
