Abstract

Pakistan is one of only two countries in the world (along with Afghanistan) which is yet to eradicate the highly infectious Wild Polio Virus (WPV1). In this post, Tahira Ali, Savaila Hunzai and Zahra Rao outline how locally-rooted, empathetic and culturally sensitive practices can help overcome barriers, and help increase the percentage of polio vaccination in the especially difficult terrains of Balochistan.
