Public Health Infrastructure
The Punjab Government is committed to the principle of universal healthcare for all members of the society, combining mechanisms for health financing and service provision and improving the health status of the population
While overall health has been improving in Punjab, the health of the least and less well off has been getting worse. To address these inequalities in health services, judicious steps are being taken to improve healthcare delivery for the less fortunate by improving infrastructure facilities at all Tehsil Headquarters and District Headquarters Hospitals of the Punjab in a phased manner.
The deficiency of beds to population ratio is also being addressed by enhancing existing bed capacities at all primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare levels. Recep Tayyip Erdogan Hospital, Muzaffargarh is undergoing an expansion phase to 500 beds. A state-of-the-art 820 bed Pakistan Kidney and Liver Institute is under construction and will become operational by the end of 2017. Another 128 bed Mother & Child Care hospital is being built in Murree.
IDAP is the executing agency for all the above projects and is committed to completing the projects in time and within budget.
