Barrister Murtaza Wahab, Spokesperson to Government of Sindh and Adviser to CM Sindh on Law, Environment, Climate Change, and Coastal Development has said that it is shamelessly alleged that the Sindh Government does nothing though all can see its exemplary performance in the health sector which is sufficient to refute the subject allegation. Not only Sindh but the people of entire Pakistan are benefiting from our health services.
He was addressing a news conference in Sindh Assembly Committee Room. Wahab further said that it is being propagated under a conspiracy that the Sindh government does nothing.
Our prestigious hospitals including that of Gambat and NICVD are serving the whole country. We have treated everyone free of cost and will continue to do so.
He regretted that whenever we want to highlight our performance, in return we are labeled with different fake charges.
He said that patients from all over the country are treated free of cost in NICVD. Given its rising demand, the branches of NICVD have been set up in Hyderabad, Mithi, Sehwan, Larkana, Ghotki, TandoAllahyar, and other cities.
Now patients do not have to come to Karachi. They get free and the best treatment facility in their areas.
So far more than 58.56 lakh patients from all over the country have been treated free of cost in NICVD. All these patients are being treated in Sindh. We are serving the federation and humanity.
Gambat Hospital is the first institution in Pakistan to perform liver and kidney transplantation.
Wahab said that if angels are ruling in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa? Shaukat Khanum Hospital does not provide free treatment.
Sindh is providing free treatment to cancer patients. Patients from 135 cities come to Karachi for treatment.
