The PPP-led provincial government of Sindh has decided to cancel the registration of as many as 30 health institutions rehabilitating the drug affectees.
According to the details, the decision was taken due to a lack of operational activity despite taking funds from the provincial government of Sindh. The decision to revoke the registration was taken during a meeting chaired by the Sindh Chief Secretary Mumtaz Ali Shah.
The Sindh Healthcare Commission (SHCC) was also directed by the authorities to carry out an inspection of the health units working for the treatment and rehabilitation of the drug affectees.
During the meeting, the provincial welfare secretary said that there are more than 50 drug rehabilitation centres registered with them. “Around 30 of them receives funding but remains non-functional,” said the secretary.
Sindh’s social welfare department directed by the chief secretary Sindh to cancel the registration of all such institution which doesn’t meet the standards.
