(MENAFN - Arab News) The World Health Organization (WHO) commended the efforts exerted by the Saudi National Polio Laboratory (SNPL), asserting that the laboratory's performance is proof of the Kingdom's advancement in the medical field.

The WHO also renewed the SNPL's accreditation after the laboratory obtained 100 percent in the annual assessment of excellence in 2013 and fulfilled the required standards.

Mustafa Tayyan, WHO representative to the Kingdom, applauded the accreditation and expressed appreciation for the organization's endorsement. "I am pleased at the WHO accreditation for the Saudi National Polio Laboratory for 2013," he said.

The official commended the efforts exerted by the laboratory's staff, and their contribution in maintaining a high level of quality in performance.

Tayyan extended appreciation to the employees at the laboratory and to the officials at the Ministry of Health for their efforts.

The WHO's accreditation of the laboratory ensures that it will become the referential lab for polio examination in the Middle East.

Routine immunization against polio has been mandatory in the Kingdom since 1979.

National immunization days were held regularly from 1995 to 2000, in coordination with other member countries, whereas supplementary national immunization days have been held since 2001, essentially covering areas visited by Haj and Umrah pilgrims.
