KPK govt investing in people: Imran Khan
31 January, 2016
PESHAWAR - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday said the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government was investing in people and it would change the health system in six months.
He said it would be his failure if he could not bring change in the health department. The reason behind the failure to bring change in government hospitals was the management system, which needed to be overhauled, he added.
Addressing the inaugural session of “Advances in Cancer and Hematology Conference” here at Khyber Medical University, Imran said that 23 per cent of the cancer patients treated at the Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital Lahore belonged to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
After the establshement of Shaukat Khanum Mamorial Cancer Hospital in Peshawar they would get treatment in the province, he said. He said no country could make progress without improving health and education departments. He urged the federal government to improve education and health sectors.
