Getz Pharma, in collaboration with SINA Health, Education and Welfare Trust, has launched a Mobile Clinic providing quality healthcare services to underprivileged members of the community. Access to healthcare across Karachi, unfortunately for underprivileged communities in far flung areas still remains limited – where in some cases individuals have to commute 40 – 50 miles to receive basic medical treatment. We are certain that the Getz Pharma SINA Mobile Clinic will be able to help bridge the gap.
The inauguration ceremony of the Mobile Clinic took place on June 6, 2017 at the Getz Pharma premises. The event was attended by Getz Pharma employees and members of the SINA team, including Mr. Khalid Mahmood, MD and CEO Getz Pharma, Mr. Aamer Naseer, Director Administration Getz Pharma, Dr. Asif A. Imran, Chairman SINA and Dr. Kamran Iqbal, Chief Operating Officer SINA.
The Mobile Clinic is a custom-fitted Toyota Hilux van, providing OPD services six days a week in total to three villages in the outskirts of Karachi which lack access to basic healthcare: Kakapir Village, Mubarak Village, Konkar Village. Through this clinic, trained doctors, technicians and clinic supervisors will be able to provide diagnostic care and medicines to those in need. The van is fully equipped with facilities for power generation and cold storage to ensure hygiene and safety.
SINA Health, Education & Welfare Trust is a not-for-profit organization whose primary objective is to provide primary healthcare services to underprivileged communities in Karachi. They have a network of 20 clinics, located strategically in urban slums to cater to the needs of more than 500,000 individuals annually. The high quality of their work positions them as a suitable partner in undertaking this endeavor.
