At UNICEF, Pakistan says security for polio workers boost after terrorist attacks PDF Print E-mail
UNITED NATIONS, Feb 11 (APP): Pakistan has reaffirmed it commitment  to the eradication of polio, saying security for vaccination teams has  been stepped up following the recent terrorists attacks on them.  "We are investing substantial financial and human resources to rid  the country of polio," Pakistani Ambassador Masood Khan told the  Executive Board of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).  "Pakistan attaches highest importance to Polio eradication," he said after the board approved  Pakistan's Common Country Program Document (CCPD) for the period 2013-2017.

"We look forward to its effective implementation through strong collaboration amongst relevant government agencies and UNICEF,  Pakistan." Ambassador Masood Khan pointed out that despite  "egregious" terrorist attacks against polio workers, the Pakistani government, all relevant institutions and civil society were persevering  in the anti-polio campaign. "Additional steps have been taken to  ensure the safety and security of vaccination teams," he said. "UNICEF  is an important partner in our efforts to achieve a world  free of polio."
Thanking the ambassador, UNICEF's Executive Director Anthony Lake lauded  Pakistan's commitment to fighting polio.
