Polio Eradication Initiative will enable the polio program to maintain campaigns monthly, the aim is to target 16 million children who are at the highest risk in Pakistan. The United Arab Emirates has been contributing US$ 200 million to polio eradication since 2014. In 2020 it was reported that 15 million children under 5 years received care and vaccines through repeated polio campaigns.
