The federal government has chalked out a comprehensive national emergency programme against polio, which is being carried out across the country in joint collaboration with the provinces.

Due to the efforts of the present government, only one case of polio has been reported in last one year. However, the campaign has been launched at larger scale to ensure access to all children in the country.
