Pakistan is proposing coordinated simultaneous polio vaccination campaign to health officials in Afghanistan to tackle the virus that is a dire threat to both Pakistan and Afghanistan. A Pakistani delegation, led by Prime Minister’s focal person on polio eradication Ayesha Raza Farooq, will be visiting Kabul to discuss the problem of polio. Travel between the borders of the two countries cannot be eliminated but what can be eliminated is the polio virus that is carried to and fro. Once the virus is controlled on both sides, it will be beneficial to both countries.
