Alkhidmat Foundation Pakistan has always been striving to serve the poorest segment of the society. Keeping in the view the situation of poor infrastructure of health sector in Pakistan, we have started a number of projects to improve the situation by provision of facilities for the general public, regardless of their socio-economic status. Alkhidmat Foundation has devised a health services program for establishing and administering Mother and Child Healthcare Centers, Hospitals, Mobile Medical Camps, Ambulance Service, Diagnostic and Collection Centers and Blood Banks across Pakistan.
Mother and Child Healthcare Centers (MCHCs)
Maternal, newborn and child healthcare statistics in Pakistan are some of the poorest in South Asia. Despite improvements in 1990s, Pakistan lags many of its neighbors in health and population outcomes. To cope up with such situation, Alkhidmat Foundation Pakistan has established Mother & Child Healthcare Centers across Pakistan with the objective to provide natal and postnatal facilities. It’s a 24/7 facility for all patients regardless of the race, religion and caste. It doesn’t only provide emergency service but also the facility of general wards for all the patients including nursery for the newborns.
Hospitals are important to treat serious illnesses, diseases and disorders of various types and severity. They don’t only provide emergency services but also provide long term and continuous medical facility to indoor patients. They also create jobs and in some cases can provide a safe place for people who are mostly recovered from abuse etc. but are not safe at home or in the community. Our hospitals are a medical facility for all the segments of society regardless of their socio-economic status.
Clinic is a place where outpatients are given medical treatment or advice, especially of a specialist nature. Alkhidmat Foundation has established clinics, which help the poor and the needy people to get access to a qualified medical doctor. An average fee of Rs.25/- is charged that includes preliminary medicine and consultancy fee. Clinics also refer patients to the nearby hospital of Alkhidmat Foundation where and when necessary.
There is a growing public need of diagnostic facilities as practitioners rather rely on the medical reports than their own past experiences and observations. Diagnostic Services and Clinical Laboratories have become an extremely profitable business, especially in remote and rural areas of Pakistan while in public sector the diagnostic services are very poor. Alkhidmat Foundation Diagnostic Network through its 100 Diagnostic centers provides more reliable and authentic reports with the help of its latest imported diagnostic equipment in its diagnostic centers and qualified medical staff. Most of the diagnostic centers of Alkhidmat Foundation Pakistan are serving the remote and rural areas of Pakistan.
Due to the increasing numbers of road accidents, terrorist attacks, poor health conditions of masses, terrorism and natural disasters, people are extremely vulnerable to causalities. In such uncertain circumstances, they need a quick access to any sort of medical facility which can decrease the chance of any major loss. In such situation the role of ambulance service has gained major importance. The objective of Alkhidmat Foundation for its ambulance service is to mitigate the severity of accidents or disasters where many people die as a result of unavailability of quick access to hospitals or ambulances arriving too late on the scene. Our ambulances provide appropriate pre-hospital care to the patients and or victims of any emergency situation. They are kitted out with necessary equipment like splints, oxygen, drugs, support of paramedical staff and others.
Blood banks are crucial for those patients who require blood in case of emergency especially the victims of terrorist attacks and road accidents. Blood banks also provide routine supply of required blood for the patients of thalassemia while they are extremely helpful during seasonal epidemics like Dengue fever.
These blood banks provide platelets for the patients of Dengue fever for their treatment. Blood can also be acquired for patients who go under medical surgeries and other medical tests like Biopsy and Endoscopy. During C-Section and minor operations for gynecology implications these blood banks play a vital role in the life saving procedure of mothers and their newborns. As most of the Alkhidmat Foundation blood excessively becomes dire for patients in big cities, all of them are providing the best facilities to the metropolitans.
Besides its several health and medical facilities, Alkhidmat Foundation Pakistan also arranges mobile medical camps as its out-reach program to provide medical and health facility to those who can’t afford medical services. These camps provide specialized medical staff for the patients at their nearby place. These medical camps provide initial diagnostic facility through qualified medical staff to the patients. Patients are examined and prescribed for initial treatment according to their symptoms and sometimes they are referred to a suitable medical facility.
