Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
According to UNICEF Report
For every 1000 babies that are born, 42 die as newborns and 62 as infants in Pakistan.
Due to limited access to life-saving interventions in the district headquarter of Lower Kohistan of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) Province in Pakistan people are deprived of their basic rights to health and education. New-born babies are dying of conditions that could be managed within households and other conditions that require professional care in health facilities. The local community had to travel approximately 8 to 9 hours before they could reach any local clinic or laboratory before the MCHC was set up. Long and difficult travel on bumpy, poorly builds roads caused the loss of many women and babies during childbirth. Due to lack of basic health facilities, Pak Mission Society established the Mother and Child Health Center in September 2011 in the extremely rough terrain of Pattan, Kohistan with the main purpose of providing 24/7 quality health care facilities to the unreached communities of Kohistan, to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality rate, to reduce the spread of communicable diseases in the area, and to raise health and hygiene-related awareness.
