Balochistan to Get Its First Cancer Hospital

By Noor Mani — Published on 18/05/2019

Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases in the world and this disease is spreading rapidly in Pakistan. The cure of the disease is quite expensive and is almost out of reach for a normal Pakistani. While there are cancer hospitals in Sindh, Punjab, and Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa, Balochistan is that one province that was deprived of the facility till now. But not anymore, as the Balochistan government has decided to build the first cancer hospital of the province in the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Hospital. The hospital will also be made part of the next year’s financial budget which will be presented in the coming months.


The spokesperson of the Balochistan government, Liaquat Shahwani, said that the mega project would be initiated in the next financial year with the work on budget of the hospital already underway. The decision has been taken as the government has started to take measures in order to provide better health care facilities to the people of Balochistan, who already are deprived of such facilities. The cancer hospital would ensure that the people of Balochistan would now have no need to travel to other provinces in order to get medical facilities related to cancer.

Liaquat Shahwani stated that the government would also start working on different development projects in the coming years for the people of Balochistan. He said that Rs. 32 billion have already been released for more than 300 development projects in the province. He said that an additional Rs. 5 billion would be released within the next couple of months as well. More development projects will also be initiated by the government in the coming years. Shahwani said that in order to curb unemployment in the province, more than 18,000 positions have been announced and people will be hired purely on the basis of merit only.
