Health is the basic right of every human. Hundreds of mothers and children die during childbirth and thousands under the age of 5, die due to water borne diseases. We are working in communities where access to healthcare services is very limited. Women and children are particularly vulnerable; as per local customs and traditions, their movements are restricted to their home and they are only permitted to leave to access healthcare in medical emergencies.
Each life is precious, therefore, we are committed to changing our society by contributing to the fourth goal of the Sustainable Development Goals, which states good health and wellbeing for all. At PMS, we seek to address tis issue, by providing quality healthcare, outreach and support to mothers through our Mother and Child Healthcare Centers (MCHC) in Pakistan’s remote, mountainous areas. PMS’s MCHC are designed to improve maternal and child health by increasing access to high quality services and integrating health and hygiene awareness and capacity building for traditional birth attendants and lady health workers. Health education, preventative and curative health services and vaccination campaigns are the main activities besides examining and treating patients. Our qualified female staff regularly counsels about the consequences of early marriages, birth spacing and family planning. Vaccinations are provided for infants and mothers against vaccine preventable diseases.
