Staff Reporter

The Institute of Public Health (IPH) and Punjab Healthcare Commission (PHC) will jointly work to impart training on the minimum service delivery standards (MSDS) to qualified healthcare service providers and managers of the healthcare establishments of both public and private sectors.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) in this regard was signed by Chairman Board of Management IPH Lt-Gen (r) Khalid Maqbool, Chairperson Board of Commissioners PHC Prof Dr Attiya Mubarak Khalid, Chief Executive Officer PHC Dr Muhammad Saqib Aziz and Dean IPH Prof Zarfishan Tahir here on Tuesday.

PHC Directors including Dr Mushtaq Ahmed Salariya, Dr Muhammad Anwar Janjua and Dr Shamaun Masood, teachers and students of the IPH were also present on the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, Prof Zarfishan Tahir said the IPH would prepare modules of the MSDS, and institutionalize the training programme jointly with the PHC, which would surely bring improvement in the healthcare service delivery. She hoped that the MoU would prove to be an important milestone in the long run.

Lt-Gen (r) Khalid Maqbool lauded the PHC for its academic role of guiding other provinces in introducing reforms and regulatory frameworks in their respective areas.

“This is heartening to see the IPH is now also collaborating with the PHC for imparting training to the healthcare service providers.

“The Institute is already jointly working with international and national organisations and universities for promoting healthcare services, higher medical education and research,” he added.
