This work is published by medical students from Aga Khan University, Pakistan. Despite having a well-established eradication program, Pakistan is still struggling to achieve a polio-free status. This fact had urged these young researchers to explore the underlying reasons for this apparent failure. Although, done on a small population in the city of Karachi, this book is an excellent review of the history of polio and how man has struggled to deal with this devastating disease. These pages give a brief but comprehensive review of the problems faced by Pakistan in her battle against polio and suggest some recommendations for future eradication strategies.
