PM’s health program to cover 11,000 households from Chitral

After attending a meeting of the National Assembly standing committee on health, the MNA said the committee recommended the removal of hurdles for the early implementation of the programme.

    Health insurance system is successfully implemented in many developed countries of the world.In Pakistan it is in its initial stage and the insurance company dealing is trying to evolve a mechanism for its successful implementation.
    At present it is visible in Islamabad territory.Inclusion of Chitral district in its initial phase is a good news.Great initiative of PM Nawaz Sharif, if successfully implemented will benefit the deserved general public.

  2. Sher Wali Khan Aseer says

    It is too early to comment on the news item. There are many things to be judged regarding implementation, release of funds, impartiality in selection of the beneficiaries and simplicity of bureaucratic procedure.Usually such kind of packages are meant benefiting the relevant party sympathizers or bribe to voters for coming elections. SBB Support programme is a living example of such packages. PPP’s vote bank owes to SBBSP for its survival in Chitral.

      fully agree with Sir Aseer this so called national health program is a failure like nawaz sharif’s announcement of compensation for flood and earthquake affectees of chitral.
      there is no progress on his announcement to construct chitral booni, garam chashma and other roads. funds provided for quake victims were given to friends and relatives of govt officials and supporters of political parties and real affected people remained without help even after spending 300 to 500 rupees on purchase of stamp papers. Nawaz sharif also announced to waive agriculture loans but the MNA and MPAs did not take follow up of his announcement due to which the poor people could not get any benefit.
      it seems we will remain on empty promises and announcement and govt of nawaz sharif will complete its tenure. long live democracy.
