Health has been included in Muslim Aid activities from 2008 but more focus has been given to the health projects from 2008 onwards. Both emergency and developmental projects have been included in health since 2008. Projects of different duration have been focus and more intensity and frequency of the health projects has been seen since 2010 floods.
Muslim Aid team has been supporting government through the strengthening/rehabilitation of government health facilities and provision of Primary Health Care (PHC) services at all the targeted flood affected districts. A very strong coordination has been built with WHO, UNICEF, UNFPA and government at district, provincial and federal levels. Muslim Aid Mega Health Project includes construction of 50 Bedded Hospital at Mansehra after the horrible 2005 earthquake for relief and help of the needy communities in the area.MAP services and achievements have been acknowledged at all the different forums and have been highly appreciated throughout. Services other than PHC include free of cost medicines provision, mobile health units, community participation, health and hygiene awareness sessions, health promotion, laboratory screening services, referral services with the help of ambulance and DEWS & CHARM reporting. There has been a high focus on provision of 24/7 MNCH services and activities have been targeted at needy places at all the 03 provinces. Future plans include focus on MNCH, Nutrition and Laboratory Services; however Emergency Response all over Pakistan will continue and the future seems to be a very promising one.
