PM felicitates govt on making KP first province with health coverage for all citizens


ISLAMABAD : Prime Minister Imran Khan took to Twitter on Monday to congratulate the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government for making KP the first province in Pakistan with universal health coverage for all KP-domiciled citizens.

“40,000,000 residents covered with free health insurance,” he tweeted, adding each family will get free treatment of up to one million in a year at over 400 government and private hospitals across Pakistan.

“It’s a big step towards achieving the dream of welfare state on pattern of Riasat e Madina as envisioned by Imran Khan.”
