Nepal to Host SAARC’s Hospital for Free Surgeries

October 20, 2017

In a move enhancing healthcare facilities across the region, the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Surgical Care Society (SCC) announced plans to construct three hospitals, one each in India, Pakistan and Nepal.

Under this plan, announced at a conference held in Ludhiana yesterday, the three hospitals will provide free surgeries with the support of SAARC SCC.

According to the President of SAARC SCC and Principal of Lahore Medical and Dental College Dr A Majeed Chaudhary and Laparoscopic Surgeon Dr Arbar Ashraf Ali, the plans in this regard are currently under process.

“The treatment for liver transplant and pediatric cardiac medical facilities and infrastructure are not up to the mark. Many children with holes in heart travel to India. As far as other ailments are concerned, Pakistan and India are at the same level,” said Dr Chaudhary.

Under SAARC, this will be beneficial as each country is best in some field or the other, he added.

The organizers expressed hope that the project would strengthen ties among all the nations.
