International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in collaboration with local research institutes and partners on Friday launched National Survey on Violence against Health-care Workers.
The survey was compiled across 16 cities of Pakistan and it was observed that more than one third of the health-care providers had experienced some form of violence in the last six months.
The large-scale survey covered 8579 healthcare workers in 16 districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Sindh, Punjab and Islamabad to determine the extent, causes and types of violence that are experienced by different levels of health-care staff.
