Prime Minister Imran Khan launched the Insaf Sehat Sahulat Card Scheme in Layyah on Wednesday, saying the step will help authorities provide free of charge medical services to the public.
"I have faith that when a state strives for the welfare of the downtrodden, it begins to flourish," he stated while addressing the distribution ceremony in the district.
"Such initiatives will enable the people to receive medical treatment as well as help the government establish an entire healthcare system."
The premier also appreciated the planned solarisation of Basic Health Units (BHUs) in Layyah and other districts, saying the project will be replicated in other areas too.
He stressed on proportionate investment of funds across the country, especially in the underdeveloped areas.
On May 24, the prime minister praised the Ehsaas programme for securing the fourth spot in the World Bank list for looking after the more vulnerable segments of the society in a transparent manner during the current pandemic.
"I praise Ehsaas programme for making it possible," PM said as he addressed the inaugural ceremony of the Ehsaas Saving Wallets initiative in Islamabad.
"Ehsaas Saving Wallets is particularly important because it will strengthen the banking system and bring more people into the net," he maintained.
PM Imran further stated that empowering women and bringing them into the financial mainstream helps alleviate poverty faster. "This step will make women financially independent and enable them to make their financial decisions."
He reiterated that "unless or until the downtrodden segments are uplifted, prosperity can't be achieved".
