    Blaming others will not correct the root cause: A human reservoir of disease that perpetuates itself by orofecal contamination of food and water supplies.

    Yes, that is correct. However, the last reservoirs of the disease are proving difficult to eradicate completely due to many reasons.

    The fight against disease like polio cannot be won when simple basics such as nutrition are not being met:

    https://www.smartbrief.com/branded/...CA1382A0/5169A394-4B27-4D87-816D-88FE31301886

    Up to 65% of the children in Quetta, Pakistan, face a high level of malnutrition, says a UNICEF nutrition officer. Contributing factors to the problem include poverty, inappropriate food and a lack of clean water, say medical experts.

    Pakistan has one of the highest prevalences of child malnutrition as compared to other developing countries.

    Sad case

    Data from 2011 was used..Hopefully the case is better now..
    But yes, IK also took note of it.

    Sadly, Most ignored province...Hopefully other provinces are showing better stats!

    If anything, the situation is growing steadily worse, not only in Baluchistan but certain other areas such as Thar. It is good that PMIK has taken notice of this worsening tragedy that is robbing Pakistan of its future, but whether he will be able to make any appreciable dent in the abysmal situation still remains to be seen.

    The fight against polio is one of the many dire challenges faced by children in Pakistan. Malnutrition and lack of health and education facilities have disastrous long term consequences, some of which we are seeing due to the past few decades of neglect. Sadly, this neglect seems to be ongoing and growing steadily worse.

    First step is always acknowledge or even knowledge of the situation/ problem.
    I believe, There have been some positive changes however not at the rate the population is growing.

    It is good to believe, and to hope for positive changes. However the hard data support what I have said above.

    I am all for waiting to see the results actually delivered by this government. They need time. I am content to wait for the results.

    The only way to decrease population growth is rapid industrialization and social security

    Excess to family planning matters but to some degree only

    Really? How times change:

    So if the polio-vaccine-is-a-jewish-conspiracy meme can be accepted as garbage today - that it's accepted Jews are funding the vaccinations for at least mutual benefit - then why shouldn't other lies slandering the Jews bite the dust today as well?
