NPR: Polio’s Surge In Pakistan: Are Parents Part Of The Problem?
“Health workers are trying to convince parents to let their children take a vaccine, but the program faces violent opposition. Researchers from Harvard [and UNICEF] polled the parents; the results surprised them. … [The] question that was most important to their poll: If a health worker came to your door, did you let them vaccinate your child? Practically every parent, 95 percent, said yes” (Aizenman, 7/30).
