    On the occasion of World Health Day, Pakistan Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif renewed the Pakistan government’s commitment to provide and ensure health facilities for every citizen in the country.

    “Towards our destination of a healthier nation, I once again reiterate the commitment to transform Pakistan’s healthcare sector at all levels that will ensure that each and every Pakistani has access to quality healthcare,’ the Prime Minister said in a message on World Health Day being observed on Sunday.

    He said that the year’s theme “My health, my right” aptly encapsulated every citizen’s right to quality health services.

    “We will partner and encourage provincial governments to expand and upgrade health facilities, launch mobile health clinics for enhanced access, re-energize immunization and improve mental health services,” PM Office Media Wing, in a press release, quoted the prime minister as saying.

    The Prime Minister said that the establishment and operationalization of Medical City, establishment of Cancer Care Hospital and Pakistan Kidney and Liver Institute facilities in each province remained their key priority.

    “We take pride in having launched the Health Card during PMLN’s 2013-18 tenure. We remain committed to universal health coverage and universal health insurance for our population, particularly providing free-of-cost healthcare services to low and middle-income families,” he added. On the World Health Day, the Prime Minister also applauded the services of health professionals, paramedical staff, nurses, and other health workers who selflessly worked day and night to provide health services to the nation.
