Details of the meeting

During the meeting, it was decided that the provincial government will either include the cost-free treatment of these diseases in the Sehat Plus Card Scheme or will launch a separate program for it. A final decision hasn’t been taken yet because the CM did not have enough information to proceed. Therefore, Mahmood Khan directed concerned officials to provide a researched report on the options to move ahead with the final approval.

The card schemes are part of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's Sehat Sahulat Program.

The meeting concluded with discussing the distribution of free ration among deserving families under the proposed Food Card Scheme and Education Card Scheme.

It should be noted that the card schemes are part of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Sehat Sahulat Program, aiming to help Pakistani families regardless of their financial status. Prime Minister Imran Khan launched the program to provide deserving families with necessities such as food, healthcare, and education.
