Norway condemns killing of health workers in Pakistan

Six health workers attached to Pakistan’s polio vaccination programme have been shot and killed.

“Norway condemns the killing of these health workers in Pakistan. Health workers must be respected and protected under all circumstances,” State Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Torgeir Larsen said.

Pakistan is one of a few countries where the number of polio cases is increasing. The national polio programme is vital in order to reverse this trend.

“I am very concerned about the increasing violence against health workers. It is an attack not only on the health workers themselves but also on the fight against polio,” Mr Larsen said.
