Due to several raids and operations in the month of August, about 135 private hospitals, medical laboratories, and clinics have been sealed by KP Healthcare Commission in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

As per a report released for August, Azar Sardar, CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Healthcare Commission, stated that 135 private health facilities, which include hospitals, laboratories, and clinics have been banned across the province.

A heavy penalty has been imposed on these violators since they were running these medical facilities illegally. The CEO stated that this step was taken after numerous complaints were received by Pakistanis through the Pakistan Citizen Portal. However, in the same month, 168 healthcare facilities of the province have successfully been registered.

228 facilities were issued notices to improve their services or face legal action:

During the operations, 228 facilities were issued notices to improve their services and up their standard, or else face legal action. This was done so to improve the conditions of subnormal facilities running across the province.

The CEO, however, said that the commission was unwilling to compromise on the health of the public. This is why all private hospitals and clinics etc. were warned to ensure availability of all he needed medical equipment and up their standard. If the hospitals didn’t do so, by the law action will be taken against them.

In the month of August, an injection safety campaign has also been run by the commission. During this drive, people and healthcare facilities were made aware of the safety measures of using an injection. As a part of this campaign, 100 studies in English about injection safety were distributed in Peshawar and 300 in Urdu in other districts.
