Health Indicators Reflect Worsening Situation Over Years: Report

And the rest of the 20pc, which should mean to be for the public, was sparsely used as a large chunk of it was splurged by the abyss of corruption. The report said Pakistan carried a heavy burden of diseases because of the poor healthcare delivery system at the primary level and due to lack of awareness and ignorance about the diseases. It said most diseases were preventable through vaccination or immunisation or by the way of simple mass awareness and provision of some basic facilities by the government. Just by providing clean potable water and proper sanitation to the people we can get rid of diseases like diarrhoea, dysentery, gastroenteritis, typhoid, hepatitis etc and fiscally challenged country can save billions of rupees, which are being consumed by the treatment of the very diseases. It said an effective vaccination programme, if carried out properly, could eradicate polio, tuberculosis, whooping cough, diphtheria, measles, smallpox, hepatitis, typhoid, meningitis, pneumonia, mumps, rubella etc for good. Unfortunately, health and education are not priority areas of our governments, it said and demanded that the government adumbrate a people-friendly health policy, increase the health budget, concentrate on preventive healthcare, eliminate corruption, honour merit and demonstrate a political will to address the issues of health and education in the country on a priority basis. It said that 2015 was round the corner yet Pakistan was many miles away from achieving the targets set under the millennium development goals. The report said dengue incidence was phenomenal in 2013, in Swat and Sindh in particular, with a combined 55 deaths.
