The Chief Minister added that complicated heart surgery of children would also be made part of the programme to facilitate the masses.
Liver, kidney and pancreas surgeries will be performed at the Bahria international hospitals. Bahria International Hospital Vice-President Dr Shazia Malik met the CM and assured him of their cooperation.

Liver transplant is extremely expensive and KP government provides free treatment to only selected poor patient under the SHPI.
