GIDROSHIA, BALOCHISTAN: In a WHO report, it has been stated that Pakistanis have been facing healthcare difficulties because of lack of economic resources. More than 60 million people live below the poverty line in Pakistan. These people cannot even meet their basic needs due to limited finance.
On top of that, if they are diagnosed with any disease, they have nowhere to go. Conditions at public healthcare facilities are pathetic. These facilities lack resources, so they are unable to provide the required services.
In Balochistan, there is no hospital for treatment of cancer. The government should take notice of the situation and do the needful without any further loss of time. People should not be left to die for want of money.
