In Health:

In response to the outbreak of dengue fever in Pakistan, BRAC Pakistan’s Health Program has organized a “Dengue Fever Awareness Seminar” in Sahiwal, Punjab. It was held on 28th October at Sahiwal’s District Headquarter Hospital, with the Executive District Officer for Health in attendance as Chief Guest. This public seminar was covered and reported by seven newspapers in the country – Daily Ausaf, Daily Jang, Daily Pakistan, Daily Nia Dur, Daily Jinnah, Daily Insaf, and Daily Express.

There was a time when “some people thought of BRAC only as a microfinance institution,” says Muhammad Luqman, the Regional Health Coordinator of BRAC Pakistan’s Health program in Sahiwal. But now BRAC is seen as more than just microfinance: “BRAC’s total flood response, including medical camps and health programs, has generated a lot of goodwill locally.”
