Flood victims at Liaquat Hospital, Azra Pechuho is on hand to help

JAMSHORO: Azra Fazal Pechuho, Minister for Health and Population Welfare, Sindh, visited Health Facilities in Jamshoro. 

Azra Pechuho visited Liaquat Hospital, Jamshoro, specifically to check how the flood survivors are being facilitated. There is a ward dedicated to treating IDPs, a 60 bedded section in the Jamshoro Campus Block. 

She also visited the Trauma and Emergency wards to identify available facilities and the types of cases that could be accommodated. 

Liaquat Hospital also has a Paediatric ward where a nursery, antenatal care, and ICUs are accessible to the patients. This hospital has also been catering to IDPs since the floods began, and there are IDP camps around the facility. The number of patients treated by Liaquat Hospital is now three times the amount before the floods. 

Azra Pechuho took note of the extra healthcare burden the hospital has been facing since the floods and said that this flood had caused extreme stress on every resource. However, Azra Fazal Pechuho reassured us that there is an adequate supply of medicine and that the means to provide the most IDPs are being utilised for flood relief. 

Later the Sindh Minister for Health and Population Welfare visited the Nutrition Stabilisation Centre at the Liaquat University of Medical and Health Sciences (LUMHS.) 

She commended the work being done at this facility. She checked the children who were patients at the facility that has treated 1600 children over two years since it was inaugurated. LUMHS and PPHI are utilising their ambulances to identify and treat malnutrition in mothers and children. 

Thirty-three patients were admitted at the time of Azra Pechuho's visit. Most of these children were IDPs and were being treated entirely free of cost.
