The 20th century ranked polio amongst the most feared diseases throughout the globe. According to reports of WHO, polio is now endemic in only three countries of world which includes Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria. Wild polio virus strains are found in the some parts of Pakistan that includes some areas of Karachi, FATA, KPK and Baluchistan. The three areas mentioned above are different from each other on the grounds of demographics, geography, climate, geo-political situation and to some extent in culture and rituals too. So, these three areas should be considered separately, to help us understand the situation of polio in the country.
