The reasons behind the unsuccessful anti-polio campaign in the country are as follows:
4. The areas in which the polio campaign is underway are being used by foreign powers just for the fulfillment of their own cause. Already built bridges, buildings and other governmental institutions are targeted with bombs. UNICEF KPK Incharge Doctor Bilal told that polio campaign became ineffective in tribal areas and KPK because of the security reasons. He added that around twenty-four new cases in KPK and seventy-four new cases in tribal areas have been registered during 2010. He linked the success of polio campaign with the better security circumstances.
5. Secondly, people are unaware of the value of polio drops in the lives of their children. The basic reason behind this is the low literacy rate. People stress on financial help first.
6. The point of view of the religious people has been changed dramatically and they openly take part in anti-polio campaigns. This change came with the help of National Research and Development Foundation and the local scholars. Chairman of the foundation Tehsin Ullah Khan said that removing their doubts and uncompromising attitudes were troublesome and were more than a great challenge. He added that around 1808 scholars are taking part in this campaign and with their 2073 addresses highlighted the value of polio vaccination and 3480 families called it illegal previously. Launching of Conferences and 98 media-briefings in every district whereas 880 press releases are sent.
JUI’s leader Moulana Fazal-ur-Rehman wrote a letter to all provincial ministers three years earlier to help in polio eradication. His letter helped us a lot and remained very productive in running the campaign. Special advisor and Former Ambassador Jalaluddin Advocate is also a part of this promotional anti-polio movement. He added that the involvement of preachers and reverends in the movement have erased the doubts fro the minds of the masses. We need the participation of all factions in anti-polio campaign, in this way we would be able to washout the menace of polio from Pakistan.
