    KARACHI: Sindh Health Minister Dr Azra Fazal Pechuho announced the provincial government’s decision to establish Sindh Medical and Dental Council (SMDC), during a press conference at Sindh secretariat on Wednesday.

    She criticised the federal government for dissolving the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) and said the Sindh government aims to set up a separate body in the province to “rid it of the dilemma inflicted by the Centre.” The health minister said that dissolution of PMDC has also troubled doctors and [medical] students.

    The provincial minister informed the media that the bill for the approval of setting up the SMDC will soon be presented in the assembly.

    Drawing attention towards the need for establishing facilities to meet the growing demand of child healthcare, Dr Pechuho said that a bill has been passed for establishing the Sindh Institute of Child Health has been passed. The facility will work to share the increasing burden of patients, most of who are presently catered to by the National Institute of Child Health.

    She also stressed the need for parents to get their children vaccinated, so as to ensure that the minors are safeguarded against various diseases. Parents have greatly contributed towards the success of expanded immunsation programmes in various countries, the health minister said, adding that “children are bound to fall sick if they are not vaccinated.”

    Specifically speaking with regards to the ongoing Typhoid Conjugate Vaccination (TCV) campaign, Dr Pechuho said the health department received vaccines for around 10 million children, of whom 9.4 million have been vaccinated. She said the campaign has been extended and vaccination centres have been set up at the hospitals to ensure full coverage. “We have made the TCV campaign a part of the routine immunisation in order to curb the spread of typhoid,” she added. Dr Pechuho assured that the government will take measures for ensuring the availability of TCV at public hospitals.

    The health minister also apprised media person of the details pertaining to the availability of anti-rabies vaccine (ARV) in the province. As many as 2,044 doses of ARV are available at the Indus Hospital in Badin and medical superintendent of every hospital has been provided funds for procuring the vaccine, she said. In addition, the local government has also launched a campaign to neuter and vaccinate dogs, said Dr Pechuho.

    She further informed the media that the provincial government plans to begin a project for treating hepatitis C. Providing details of the project, she said the project will be based in Larkana, where patients will be screened and treated for the disease. “We want the project to be community based, which requires massive investment,” the provincial minister said, adding that if successful, it will be extended to other districts of the province.

    The health minister also spoke about the dengue control programme launched by the Sindh government, saying that it is being run on a small scale and includes raising awareness and fumigation. She said it is local government’s responsibility to run the programme, adding that the provincial health department tasks relate to providing treatment while tasks pertaining to prevention and control are to be performed by the public health department and the local government.

    Acknowledging that numerous dengue cases have been reported from Sindh, Dr Pechuho said the government aims to devise an effective strategy for controlling the spread of the disease and expressed hope that less number of dengue cases are reported next year, after the strategy is implemented.

    Child life Foundation CEO Ahsan Rabbani also spoke on the occasion. He stressed the need to address the issue of pneumonia, stating that the disease is the primary cause of child mortality and claims the lives of around 72,000 children, under five years of age, every year.

    I feel for the people of Sindh. Can you imagine the poor quality of doctors that will be sanctioned by this circus.

    Just being formed to facilitate escape of political Sindhi criminals (Zardari) just like Punjabi criminal (Nawaz sharif) was set free in Punjab by doctors association and lawyers in courts & judges

    Now TV channels are talking about evidence against Nawaz sharif family and Shabaz Sharif when they already escaped Pakistan making the courts their "Rakeel" or mistress

    Whenever the NAB or National officers who are investigating criminal cases or corruption close in on rich class the ethnicity and provincial escape routes continue to open up

    Kahan giya Fazul-rehman mota !! After Nawaz Sharif escaped Pakistan?


    Own education board= Cheating in every metric, college and university exams
    Own police force = No cases registered against Ethnic politicians
    Own judges = No long term imprisonment, easy bails, and easy forgiveness policy
    Own medical boards = Easy reports to aid release from prison on illness grounds
    Own financial boards = Easy money laundering schemes


    No merit / quality system at National Level

    Sounds to me like a new department of Govt of Sindh to suck more money in the name of medical from federal and put in their own pockets.

    I can already smell aroma of greed here.

    This lady needs to be shot in the head. She is directly responsible for 600 children in Larkhana getting HIV AIDs and 1000s of children dying in Thar every year.

    Few facts , Sindhi are not very hard working people. Plus, they have no concept of accountability due to centuries old feudal system. Even the farmers from Punjab goes to Sindh during harvesting season.

    Why is there no Central Medical and Dental board?

    It is so surprising that Pakistan doesn't have a proper vaccination program.
