Dr. Abdul Basir Sarwar, Deputy Minister of Public Health, commenting on the goals of the call center, said “In our country, the access to quality health services have been increased as a result of our hard efforts during the past decade, but the awareness of our people regarding health information has not seen much improvement. We are, therefore, trying to enhance public awareness in cooperation with our partners from the private sector.”

Paywast is the implementing partner of the Health Information Center (HIC) and operates the center together with the Health Systems Strengthening Unit (HSS) of the Health Ministry.
