Islamabad will be turned in to a model health city as vowed by the Minister for National Health Services, Regulations, and Coordination, Aamer Mehmood Kiani.
He inaugurated a health care programme and said, ‘Let’s cure Hepatitis B, C and Tuberculosis’ at the France Colony of Islamabad.
Kiani revealed that the ministry will work hard and leave no stone unturned in order to control the major diseases in the federal capital. He said that almost 99% of the usual diseases can be cured.
The minister said that he will set an example that can be followed by the other provinces to change & improve the health care facilities all over Pakistan.
He said that the previous governments did not give much importance to the health sector.
Regretfully he stated, “Some 35 years ago three hospitals were established in Islamabad. The numbers are still the same after more than three decades; health was never a priority of the former governments.”
He said that the ministry under the vision of Pak PM Imran Khan is working on different initiatives that will improve the lower class of the society.
He said, “The government is going to build two new hospitals by the end of May 2019 and to extend the already established hospitals.”
New blocks will be constructed along with the hiring of new staff as disclosed by the minister.
Adding, “Each deserving family would get medical treatment worth Rs. 720,000 annually.”
