What is the best hospital in karachi

Our help in Pakistan

You can find current information about our work due to the Covid-19 pandemic here.

Our activities at a glance:

  • 33,200 deliveries
  • 6,550 treatments for cutaneous leishmaniasis
  • 5,150 inpatient admissions of children

In the provinces of Baluchistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, we provided obstetrics and cared for infants and children at five locations. In Baluchistan we supervised an outpatient and inpatient program for severely malnourished children. In the border town of Chaman we cared for accident victims and supported the emergency room of a clinic in the Lower Dir district.

In four clinics we treated cutaneous leishmaniasis, a parasitic disease that is transmitted by a sand fly bite. In 2019, during an acute outbreak, we donated medical supplies to the authorities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province. Since hepatitis C infections are common in Pakistan, we supported a clinic in Machar Colony, a poor district of Karachi. We offered diagnosis, treatment and psychological help there.

Our teams also supported the authorities in combating a nationwide dengue fever outbreak. We also delivered medical supplies to a hospital after an earthquake in Kashmir.

Doctors Without Borders first offered assistance in Pakistan in 1986.
