The DCO promised the district government would help both the NGOs that were working on water and women health issues. He stressed the need for creating awareness among women about their health .  Speaking on the occasion, MPA Hamad Nawaz Tipu said that the Punjab government was focusing on health issues of the girls.
NGO Programme Coordinator Hina Kausar said that the main health problem for the rural women was sexually transmitted diseases, and reproductive tract infections. Important point was that, unfortunately, most of the rural women remain unaware to these disorders. The main reasons of the alarming situation were lack of education, health care centres and tribal customs that restricted the women from clinical tests, she added.
