One Woman’s Mission to End Polio in Pakistan

Polio is still a critical problem in Pakistan where vaccination efforts have stalled. Khalida Nasreen is on a mission to change that. Every morning at 5 a.m., she hops on a motorbike and makes her way around Karachi, going door-to-door to inoculate the children in town. It’s a dangerous job as healthcare workers have lost their lives in the same pursuit, but that doesn’t stop Khalida. Thanks to her efforts, the prevalence of polio in town has decreased, building a brighter future for the next generation of Pakistani children.

Mustafa’s crippled future is a warning to us all

Deep in the slums of Pakistan’s biggest city is a 15-months-old boy with a problem that could, perhaps should, have been conquered long before he was born.
Mustafa crawls happily across the dirt floor of his home in Karachi, but when his mother tries to stand him up his difficulties become obvious.

His leg is visibly weak and his foot twisted and hanging uselessly at an odd angle.

While most of the world has consigned polio to history, as ITV News Diplomatic Correspondent John Ray reports, Mustafa’s world will be confined by its crippling effects.
