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. He said Chitral had been included in the first phase of the health programme amongst 22 beneficiary districts selected out of a total of 144 districts of Pakistan.
However, the MNA did not reply to a text message sent to him by ChitralToday about the names of hospitals the patients of Chitral would have to approach for the free treatment under the programme.
