Health & Hygiene

Current estimates suggest that about 75% of all Pakistan's deaths and about 85% of all illnesses result from diseases, which are considered preventable. This means that four out of every five deaths could have been prevented, while out of every ten people who are ill nine needs not to be ill. These unnecessary deaths and sufferings are overwhelmingly caused by inappropriate health behaviors which are widespread, and the most basic of primary health care services are not accessible to a large percentage of the population.
