Team HTV Nov 11 2014

A 3 day anti-polio campaign was launched in various high risk areas of Karachi. However, the campaign has kicked off on a rocky start. Progress was halted in Baldia Town and Ibrahim Hyderi when workers refused to participate due to poor security arrangements as well as non-payment of salaries. 97 highly sensitive areas of Karachi have been included in the campaign. An estimated 8 lakh children will be vaccinated. The campaign will be extended to other areas of Sindh as well including Hyderabad, Larkana, Sukker, Mirpur Khas, and Nowshero. In total, an estimated 35 lakh children will be vaccinated. The workers have refused to work in highly sensitive areas without security. Moreover, due to delayed security arrangements, the campaign was delayed by 2 hours in the areas of Landhi and Korangi.
