About 12 million children in Pakistan received polio vaccinations in a campaign spearheaded by the UAE.
The UAE-Pakistan Assistance Programme is part of a global effort to eradicate polio being led by Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.
Abdullah Al Ghafli, director of the programme, said the campaign was carried out to the highest standard.
The geographical scope included 88 locations such as federally administered tribal areas and the Balochistan and Sindh region.
It was carried out by tens of thousands of vaccination team members including doctors, protection and security personnel in a challenging environment because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
