People from across country come to Sindh for medical treatment: Naz Baloch
KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Naz Baloch said people from across the country come to Sindh’s hospitals for medical treatment, ARY News reported.
“It will be wrong if I say everything is fine. Every province needs to work a lot on health reforms but the NICVD ( National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases) branches are giving state of the art health facilities, ” Naz Baloch said while speaking during ARY News show ‘Sawal Yeh Hai’.
She admitted that there were a number of queues in every public hospital but still the government could not be negligent towards them despite the fact that it did not have too many resources.
However, she said that Sindh had better health and medical facilities than other provinces.
