Our Health System has come under great stress due to the devastation of floods. It has damaged more than 200 health facilities, Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani informed on Tuesday. During his review of the Health Situation In The Flood Affected Areas, Gilani said he had directed the Federal Ministry of Health to take all measures necessary to prevent outbreaks of diseases among the people. To date, more than 200 tons of medicines have been supplied by the Federal Government for 2.2 million affectees. He said that NDMA should coordinate all relief measures, and the National Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Network (NHEPRN) of the Ministry of Health should be the focal point for the health initiatives in emergencies. Similar focal points of the provincial governments should coordinate their efforts in this regard with NHEPRN for a comprehensive coordinated, effective and prompt response.
