He further said all families of these divisions will get medical treatment up to 720,000 rupees from government as well as designated private hospitals through the Insaf Health Card.

He said under the scheme, the card holders may get an additional amount of 300,000, if necessary, to complete the treatment.

The PM commended the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governments for providing universal health coverage to all his citizens.

Furthermore, he said provision of Insaf Health Card will become a great safety net for the poor people.

He said universal health coverage scheme will also revamp and upgrade the entire health system of Pakistan.

He further said it will encourage the private sector to establish hospitals at far flung areas.

The government will facilitate them by providing state land and allowing duty free import of necessary medical equipment.

The Prime Minister also appreciated Punjab Government’s initiative of establishing mother and child hospitals.

Moreover, he praised solarization of all Basic Health Units across Punjab.

He also commended Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar for uplifting of backward areas of the province like DG Khan and Sahiwal Divisions.

He said inclusive development of backward areas also helps prevent concentration of population in big cities, where provision of civic amenities has become a challenge now.

Regarding recent incident of barbarism by dacoits in the area, Imran Khan announced to take massive operations against these lawbreakers. He said police and Rangers will be directed to eliminate these dacoits to provide protection to the people.
