Dr. Ahmed Waqas, the CEO of Life Rehealth, has been active in CPEC medical cooperation for the long-term. He said in an exclusive interview that, the occurrence of cancer in Pakistan is quite high, especially, liver cancer, lung cancer, and so on. However, due to the current medical level and sanitary conditions, patients cannot receive world-class treatments for curing cancer.
Hence, the cooperation between Pakistan and China in this sector is of great importance and will bring exclusive benefits to Pakistan. While explaining the reasons why Pakistan chose the Chinese company as a cooperative partner, Waqas said, the cooperation in the medical field is quite necessary and important that requires profound relationship and trust between the two sides.
