KNOWLEDGE AND PERCEPTION OF YOUTH ABOUT POLIOMYELITIS IN SINDH

Poliomyelitis (polio) is a highly infectious viral disease that largely affects children under 5 years of age. The virus is transmitted by person-to-person spread mainly through the faecal-oral route or, less frequently, by a common vehicle (e.g. contaminated water or food) and multiplies in the intestine, from where it can invade the nervous system and cause paralysis (World Health Organization, 2020). Pakistan still struggling to eradicate polio from country. Youth can play an important role to maximize the efforts of polio eradication from the country.

In this context, a study was conducted to assess the knowledge and attitude regarding polio disease among youth enrolled in various college and universities of Sindh. Data was collected in the four large districts/cities of Sindh and from public and private college and universities using a self-administered questionnaire.
