Polio's Last Battle

1 x 48
Broadcaster:  CNA

In this inspirational documentary, a team of brave medical practitioners go door-to-door in the most remote regions of Pakistan, giving anti-polio drops to children, and providing healthcare to households.


Scores of polio workers and the security officials guarding them have been killed since 2012 by militants who claim vaccination programmes are part of a plot to sterilise Muslims. In 2023, two officers guarding a polio vaccination team in northwest Pakistan were shot dead by assailants.


Polio's Last Battle follows travelling medic Farooq, and his family, who despite death threats are committed to vaccinating children against polio and providing medical care to Pakistan's most hard to reach families.
