PTA Requests YouTube and Other Platforms to Prevent Sharing of Anti-Polio Videos

To support polio eradication efforts, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), in collaboration with Pakistan Polio Eradication Program, has taken the initiative to put an end to propaganda videos against polio vaccination by blocking/removal of such videos for viewership in Pakistan.

In this regard, PTA has taken up this issue with major social media/video sharing websites including Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, and Dailymotion etc. requesting them to prevent usage of their platforms for anti-vaccination content.

As per reports of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, Polio disease is still endemic in three countries i.e. Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. The reason being highlighted is the avoiding of and distrust in vaccinations and misconceptions about the veracity of the Polio vaccine.

PTA remains fully committed in support of Government of Pakistan’s and global community’s coordinated and concentrated efforts against the crippling effects of polio and to achieve the status of a Polio free Pakistan.
