Executive Summary

Pakistan's federal minister for health has called for changes in the national healthcare system to improve access and facilities for the general public. Ijaz Jackrani said "positive changes" were needed to ensure health delivery was visible and easy to access for the public, while the health secretary said present regulations were outdated and needed to be changed. As part of the improvements the minister called for a focus on controlling the spread of hepatitis B and C through an awareness campaign, as well as for action against unqualified doctors operating in the country.
