Sindh Healthcare Commission miserably failed to deliver: Sidra


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPA Sidra Imran expressing serious concerns over spread of HIV/AIDS in the province has said that the Sindh Healthcare Commission has miserably failed to deliver.
In a statement issued here Sunday, Sidra Imran said infectious diseases are rising in Sindh, but the provincial health minister is least concerned about it and is busy in leisure visits and tours. She said as per a report of Pakistan Health Research Council presently 3million people in Sindh province have been suffering from hepatitis-b and 5320 others from hepatitis-c.
The health department of Sindh has not only failed to provide them the treatment facilities but also it could not even register these patients, she said adding that despite spending Rs2.44billion on hepatitis program the net result is zero.
The PTI MPA said the Sindh Health Department even does not have modern equipment for screening of patients. She said the Sindh Healthcare Commission is a failure and it is working only on paper. It has failed to improve conditions in both government and private hospitals of the province, while quacks are playing with lives and heath of people with impunity.—INP
