Ongoing conflict continued to displace families and individuals.
TANDO MOHAMMAD KHAN/NAUSHAHARO FEROZE, Pakistan – Aashu Tresa, 32, remembers when becoming a mother was a life-or-death proposition.
When she was growing up, no one in her rural village, Misree Kolhi, gave birth under the care of a trained health worker. “Unskilled, untrained birth attendants were doing deliveries in our community. Some of the newborns died and some of the women had infections during deliveries,” she recounted.
Even now, the journey to motherhood remains a dangerous one in Pakistan.

Under the 18th replenishment of the International Development Association (IDA18) – the Bank’s fund for the poorest countries – a $2 billion financing window is now available to help manage these crises with longer term solutions, which will benefit both refugees and host communities. Eight countries in Africa, South Asia, the Middle East and North Africa regions have been found eligible for assistance so far, and discussions are underway with several other countries for potential support.

With families on the move posing one of the biggest challenges to eradication in Pakistan, an innovative campaign is vaccinating children on trains.
Dressed in a blue uniform, carrying a vaccine carrier on his shoulder, Imran Khan is a polio vaccinator working at Karachi Cantonment Railway station. “I make sure no child under five travelling by train is missed during the immunization campaign,” he says. Apart from vaccinating children, Imran also sensitizes their parents on the importance of vaccination and threats posed by the crippling disease.
