I've been trying to look for data on the number of community health worker deaths in Pakistan, ideally those who were working with polio vaccinations.

In particular, I'm trying to look for the number of deaths by year and by province in Pakistan, from around 2010 to right now. It's difficult to find data, but even if I can only find numbers on the number of deaths per year in the entire country, I'd be forever thankful!

  • Have you tried directly contacting government sources in Pakistan and/or the World Health Organization (WHO). – user3856 Nov 26 '17 at 14:45
  • @BarryCarter I've tried government sources in Pakistan, but haven't been able to find anything for that. Same for WHO. Those two were actually the first places I checked, but I couldn't find much. There is data on polio cases, vaccines administered (although that is not specific), but nothing with respect to community health workers. I kind of posted here in hope that somebody might have a pointer somewhere, but at the same time, I'm not really expecting anything to come out of this :/ – Zizouz212 Nov 26 '17 at 19:33
