10 Best Activities



The World Health Organisation (WHO) has initiated a project for establishing labor rooms and repairing flood-damaged health facilities in Balochistan after last year's floods.

26 labor rooms will be built as part of the project, which is a component of the WHO's goal to strengthen the province's health facilities. The plan is also to renovate 100 damaged health facilities.

After a meeting with WHO Balochistan Director, Dr. Asfandyar Yar Sherani on Tuesday, the Parliamentary Secretary Dr. Rubaba Khan Buledi stated that the new labor rooms would offer high-quality maternity facilities to mothers and children in the province's hospitals.


The praises poured in as she expressed profound appreciation for the World Health Organization (WHO) and its role in elevating the healthcare system of Balochistan. With genuine admiration, she appreciated WHO's unwavering cooperation and support in ensuring the provision of vital medical services to the most vulnerable and needy patients in the region. 

Dr. Sherani, while briefing the parliamentary secretary, said that “a dental unit has also been established at Usta Mohammad while warehouses have been set up in the offices of district health officers in Nasirabad and Jaffarabad districts”.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has received appreciation for its significant contribution to improving healthcare in Balochistan. The WHO's assistance in delivering healthcare to those who need it most is much appreciated by the local authorities. 

Also, back in June, the administration of Balochistan started a variety of programs to strengthen the health facilities available to residents, especially those who live in remote parts of the province.

A total of 5.5 billion rupees had been set up in the budget to offer citizens free health services through health cards.

With that, keeping the focus on the betterment of the health facilities in Balochistan, a similar deal was made with the Bill and Malinda Gates Foundation to speed up child immunization in the region.

A lot has been expected by the public from the Government of Balochistan in this matter and progress has been observed.
