180,000 KP residents treated in other parts of the country under health card scheme

Since its inception in 2016, the Sehat Card Plus initiative has provided essential healthcare support to over 2.715 million individuals, including more than 180,000 residents from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) who received free medical treatment throughout Pakistan.

Backed by KP’s substantial investment of Rs81 billion, this initiative has significantly alleviated the financial burden of healthcare expenses for patients in the region.

The program offers access to medical services at over 700 hospitals nationwide, providing families with annual coverage of up to Rs1 million. This coverage has been crucial for KP residents seeking specialized treatments, including liver and renal transplants, often performed outside their home province due to limited local facilities.

The Sehat Card Plus not only supports healthcare within Pakistan but also extends its benefits to patients requiring medical attention abroad. With a dedicated allocation of Rs37 billion, the initiative underscores KP’s commitment to ensuring comprehensive healthcare coverage for its residents, fostering a healthier and more resilient community.
