WHO denies suspending of Polio campaign in Pakistan

QUETTA: The World Health Organisation (WHO) on Thursday denied that it was suspending operations in Balochistan province following the cold-blooded murder of four polio vaccinators in Quetta earlier this week.

“WHO would like to categorically dispel the notion of closing down or withdrawing its operations in Balochistan or anywhere else in Pakistan,” said a statement sent to the press from Dr Michel Thieren, WHO representative in Pakistan.

In a statement he said that WHO remained committed to its goal of eradicating polio from Pakistan.
