A global body monitoring attempts to end polio has described Pakistan's program as a disaster. The independent monitoring board is made up of polio experts and reports to the World Health Organization. Pakistan accounted for 80% of new cases this year. But its government blames the current surge on the Taliban who attacked vaccination teams. Here is Jill McGivering.
The report by the independent monitoring board said Pakistan's program continues to flounder hopelessly as its virus flourishes. It was now the major stumbling block to polio eradication, it said, and went on to describe the level of political commitment and the involvement of civil society as totally inadequate. It recommends that its program is handed at once to the country's disaster management body which deals with emergencies like floods and earthquakes.
