Balochistan bifurcates health department

Parliamentary secretary says move aimed at improving service delivery

Our Correspondent June 05, 2021


Balochistan Health department has been split into two administrative units to facilitate the provision of quality health services and ease managerial matters in the province.

Dr Rubaba Khan Buledi, who is Balochistan Parliamentary secretary, said the Health department would deliver quality services with the division and explicit definition of administrative responsibilities.

She expressed this while talking to Primary and Secondary Healthcare Department Secretary Aziz Ahmad Jamali who called on her after assuming charge of new responsibilities.

Appreciating the performance of Jamali for outstanding services in the field of health through People’s Primary Healthcare Initiative (PPHI) platform, she expressed hope that the secretary would continue playing a vital role in providing quality healthcare facilities to the people by activating them at the grass-root level.

“It is a satisfactory situation that Noorul Haq Baloch has the responsibility of specialised healthcare and medical education, while primary and secondary healthcare unit is also run by experienced officers of the Balochistan government,” she said, adding Chief Minister Jam Kamal was heading the Health Department with a clear vision.

Meanwhile, provincial Parliamentary Secretary for Information Bushra Rind expressed concern over frequent disruption of education and business.

However, she maintained that health and life were the foremost priorities of the government. “The reopening of educational institutions is in no way a signal that the threat of the coronavirus has been eliminated,” she said, adding parents, teachers and other people related to the system should not ignore standard operating procedures (SOPs) to curb the spread of the virus.
