New Delhi: Pakistan`s battle against polio has been marred by conflicts, natural disasters and lack of accountability over the past year and it is now looking at lessons from India, which has just been taken off the WHO list of polio-endemic countries.According to Unicef, Pakistan registered 198 cases of polio in 2011, rising from 144 cases in 2010. Over the last two months, the country has reported nine cases of polio."In the previous plan against polio, war and floods have been the biggest roadblocks for immunisation and campaigning. We faced serious issues in accessibility in provinces where war is on and people, fearing the military, close their doors when immunisation volunteers or health volunteers arrive," Aziz Memon, national chairman of the Pakistan Polio Plus committee, told.
