MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN

Prof. Dr. Muhammad Aman

The population of Pakistan has increased to more than 200 million in 2018. The people are faced with the triple burden of diseases, infectious & nutritional diseases, non-communicable (life style diseases) and injuries both interpersonal conflicts and road traffic accidents. The allocation and utilization of funds for health and education is faced with many issues at both policy level and implementation levels. This has led to miseries and sufferings for the people who become ill and need the attention of health care providers available in public / NGO sector or and private sector throughout KP and new merged districts from FATA. For the majority of the people of KP there are difficulties in the availability, accessibility, affordability and acceptability of including poor quality of health care services. There is more poverty as a result out of packet expenditure from poor segment of society in availing health care services at all levels especially in tertiary health care in cities.
Keeping all these factors, The Dean Peshawar Medical College guided the faculty and students of Peshawar Medical College and Peshawar Dental College to work for establishing a Social Welfare Society. The Society will try providing help to patients and care givers coming to hospitals associated with Peshawar Medical College. The faculty coordinators and members of SWS will financially facilitate and educate the patients and their care givers. This will develop a partnership with family / other care givers in the management and after care of patients treated in hospital.
This may also help the students of our Institutes in giving back to society where they are learning. The members of the SWS also learn the leadership and management roles as medical professionals in their future life. It also givesthe ample opportunity to learn and practice communication skills and a caring attitude towards the patients and their families. It will add to the growth of the individual working for the SWS and also the growth of the Institutes they are being educated.
The members of SWS provide an opportunity to the potential donors to use their Sadaqat for the destitute and deserving humanity so they do not have to look for deserving people.
