The health department in Karachi signed an agreement with the World Health Organisation (WHO) to fix 150 primary healthcare centers in 21 districts that were damaged by floods. The agreement was signed on World Health Day. The WHO will help repair the health facilities, and the health department will make sure health services continue by providing staff and supplies. Last year, the WHO improved 76 labor rooms, five neonatal intensive care units, and five comprehensive maternal service centers in flood-affected areas. They also set up 45 nutrition stabilization centers. To improve vaccination, the WHO has helped fix 414 vaccination centers in Sindh, with 66 of them being fixed in 2023 alone. The health minister and WHO representative talked about using solar power for vaccine storage facilities and targeting children who haven’t received any vaccinations. The health minister thanked the WHO for their support and suggested having fixed vaccination sites to save time and make it easier for the community.
