Berlin: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has announced a $1.2 billion donation to eradicate polio from around the world. The money will be used to fully implement the strategy of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative by 2026, the foundation said in a statement on Sunday. Under this initiative, efforts are being made to eliminate polio in Pakistan and Afghanistan. According to the statement, this money will also be used to prevent the outbreak of new forms of the virus. The foundation made this announcement on Sunday at the World Health Summit in Berlin.

According to a statement released on the foundation’s website, it has so far given about $ 5 billion to the polio eradication initiative. Under this initiative, efforts are being made to link polio campaigns with comprehensive health services. Through this the use of ‘Novel Oral Polio Vaccine Type-2’ is also being promoted.

Mark Suzman, the Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), said: “The last phase of eradicating it (polio) has been the most complex yet. The Foundation is committed to building a polio-free future and we hope to do so soon.” ” So far this year, 20 cases of polio have been reported in Pakistan. All these came to the fore in its north-western Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

At the same time, two cases of polio have been reported in Afghanistan so far this year. Polio vaccines are not reaching many places due to increasing violence since the Taliban took over the reins of the country and banning parties associated with the Taliban’s polio campaign. However, months after coming to power last year, the Taliban agreed to allow UN health workers to launch a national campaign.
