Sehat Sahulat Program has been launched by the Prime Minister Imran Khan for Azad Jammu and Kashmir. He said that this program will provide health insurance to 1.2 million families in the territory and they can get medical treatment from 350 health facilities across Pakistan.
Addressing the launching ceremony in Islamabad on Friday, he said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) government had started this project from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa where the process has now been started to extend the facility to every household.
Imran Khan further stated that in Punjab 6 million families have been provided with the health cards and the provincial government there is striving to provide this facility to the entire population by the end of next year.
The Premier has said that the launch of this program in Azad Kashmir will also send a message across the LOC where a fascist and oppressive regime is oppressing the rights of people that we care for our people.
“Given the economic constraints, launching this universal health coverage program was a courageous decision by the government,” he said, adding that this program is in line with the principles of State of Madina.
He reaffirmed the commitment to transform Pakistan into a welfare state as per the vision of founding fathers.
