BOONI: While Pakistan is yet to be declared a polio-free country by the World Health Organization(WHO), Chitral has remained a polio-free district forover three decades only because of firm resolve by parents to make the vaccination campaigns result oriented. There have never been a refusal case in Chitral so far.
