Prime Minister Imran Khan claimed on Wednesday that govt will make sure to health cards to the citizens which would ensure complete, free of charge medical coverage, which was unimaginable in the country earlier.
While addressing the launching ceremony of Sehat Sahulat Cards for Sehat Sahulat Cards the prime minister stated that with the extension of the facility to every family of Punjab, the poor people would no longer have to worry about medical treatment.
He said every family in the two divisions could now avail treatment worth Rs720,000. They could get health facilities in all the public and private hospitals alike. As informed by the Punjab health minister, Rs300,000 additional could be sanctioned to the deserving families when required, he added.
The prime minister said the system of universal health coverage was new and there would be a need for vigilance.
“It will become a safety net and end health concerns of the poor people,” he added. The prime minister also underlined the need to encourage the private sector to fully participate in the health initiatives.
