PESHAWAR: Anti-polio drive will be launched on March 23 in Pakistan’s tribal areas, Geo News reported on Monday.


However, the children in South and North Waziristan agencies would be deprived from the immunization against the crippling disease due to security concerns.


Political authorities said during the three-day campaign almost 700,000 children would be administered anti-polio vaccine.


They said 200,000 children in South and North Waziristan tribal region would not be administered the anti-polio drops.
