Key Interventions


Improved Healthcare Facilities

We have rehabilitated and constructed over 199 healthcare facilities, improving access to quality care for residents in remote and marginalized communities. This includes both major and minor repair/rehabilitation work and new construction projects, ensuring essential medical services are closer to those who need them most.


Capacity Building for Primary Healthcare Management Committees (PCMCs):

We understand that empowered communities lead to a healthier society. SRSP equips PCMCs with the knowledge and skills they need to effectively manage local healthcare facilities. This includes conducting training workshops on essential topics like health improvement planning, financial management, and procurement procedures. Additionally, in specific districts, we provide PCMCs with grants to support their operations.


People's Primary Healthcare Initiative (PPHI)

Between 2007 and 2017, SRSP played a key role in the PPHI project, managing 424 Basic Health Units (BHUs) across 14 districts. This initiative significantly strengthened primary healthcare delivery in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by providing essential medical services at the grassroots level.

Bringing Hope and Healing to North Waziristan: The Sehat Umeed Programme

The Sehat Umeed Programme, funded by MPCL, is a beacon of hope for underprivileged communities in North Waziristan. This innovative initiative tackles the region’s limited healthcare infrastructure by providing access to comprehensive medical services at some of Pakistan’s most prestigious hospitals. From open-heart surgeries to deliveries, Sehat Umeed covers a wide range of medical needs, ensuring marginalized communities receive the quality care they deserve.

To ensure seamless patient care, SRSP has established a dedicated team of consultants in Bannu who assess patients and facilitate referrals to top-tier medical facilities like Shifa Hospital, Northwest Hospital, and Peshawar Cardiology Hospital. Additionally, a digital dashboard tracks each patient’s journey, ensuring transparency and efficient program management. With over 145 patients already benefitting from Sehat Umeed, this program is making a real difference in the lives of those who need it most.

From Pandemics to Floods: SRSP’s Commitment to Community Health in Challenging Times
