Chitral, November 25: Deputy Commissioner Muhammad Shuaib Jadoon inaugurated the Rural Health Center (RHC) Mastuj under public private partnership between Aga Khan Health Service (AKHS) and Health Department KPK today, 140 KM from here. The inaugural ceremony was chaired by Siraj Ali Khan Advocate, secretary of the Aga Khan Regional council upper Chitral.
Speaking at the occasion, the speakers hailed services of AKHS and government health department for handing over this hospital to AKHS on public private partnership. The speakers said that RHC building had been constructed in 1975 but there was neither a doctor nor other staff and therefore the people of the area were facing great problems. They were compelled to take their patients to Chitral town, spending huge amounts and sometimes patients expired on their way before reaching hospital.
