Using Ehealth to Improve Access to Healthcare in Pakistan

Pakistan faces health care challenges similar to many other developing nations. While the government is responsible for providing health care to all of its ctizens, about 60 percent lack access to even basic care.

In an effort of address the health care shortfall, the Pakistan Ministry of Health is increasing usage of eHealth programs and services that can more easily provide care to rural populations.
