Primary Care

The slums in which the majority of Karachi’s population lives have little to show in the way of health facilities. Private hospitals are a rare feature and the government health units in the slums are understaffed, overburdened, and dismally below par in terms of the standard of care. To solve this healthcare crisis, ChildLife Foundation partnered with SINA Trust to bring primary healthcare to the doorsteps of the less privileged. SINA specializes in establishing clinics in low income areas of Karachi. The greatest asset is its quality management system which has adapted international healthcare protocols for application in low-income settings. All doctors at SINA clinics are trained to use this system and the aim now is to replicate this in clinics across Pakistan.
