The changing scenario of childcare in Pakistan - Aga Khan University's Annual Emergency Medicine Conference | The Express Tribune

KARACHI: Media reports sometimes encourage people to come out and help people in need. The present condition of the two biggest children’s emergency departments of Civil Hospital Karachi (CHK) and National Institute of Child Health (NICH) is a result of such reports that changed the whole scenario of healthcare for children.

Speaking at the fourth Annual Emergency Medicine Conference (AEMC), Dr Naseeruddin Mahmood, paediatrician and neonatologist at South City Hospital and Aga Khan University (AKU) Hospital, said that a report encouraged him and his friends to renovate the CHK emergency ward. Earlier, the ward was in a pathetic state when a CNN correspondent Sanjay Gupta highlighted its condition in 2010, he added.

The two-day AEMC was organised by AKU, in collaboration with the National Institute of Health, Johns Hopkins University and the Fogarty JHU-Pak International Collaborative Trauma and Injury Research Training Programme.
