Pakistan PM Imran Khan unveiled the first phase of Sehat Insaf Card scheme to give free medical aid to over 80 million BPL families in Pakistan. Pakistan’s Sehat Insaf Card scheme covers free medical treatment worth Rs 720,000 in private or state-owned hospitals.
The scheme will provide treatment for angioplasty, brain surgery, and cancer.
“The cards will be distributed in Islamabad, then our tribal areas and then all over the country,” Pakistan’s PM said. Imran Khan emphasised saying, “We want to aid and safeguard the poor segments of the society by issuing health cards.”
The Sehat Insaf Card is part of Khan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf party’s Sehat Sahulat Programme which is an extension of health insurance scheme first launched by the party in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region in 2016. “It was first issued to half of all households, then to 69% of poor households in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa,” Khan said.
