Pakistan has been facing major healthcare problems for decades. Infectious diseases are more common in Pakistan than in other developing countries. According to statistics, Pakistan has the world’s second-highest hepatitis rate. It is suffering from an HIV concentration outbreak as well as a dengue fever epidemic. Community Health Program intends to prevent and mitigate the effects of common infectious diseases in Pakistan, including Hepatitis (B & C), HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Dengue, Tuberculosis.
The first component includes HBsAg, HCV, HIV testing, Hep-B vaccine, and EPI campaign across Pakistan. It will provide these screening and vaccination services to medical and dental students, health care providers, and residents from diverse regions of Pakistan.
The second component comprises TB Chest Camps which aims to find the missing millions and establish healthy referral networks with the government for the free diagnostic and treatment facilities.
The program’s third aspect is free Mosquito Net Distribution Drives. In the affected areas of Pakistan, these drives will concentrate on the distribution of Long-Lasting Insecticidal Mosquito Nets (LLINs), counseling, and raising awareness about EPI vaccination. It will assist 6000 families each year, totaling approximately 30,000 individuals.
