The National Commission for Human Development in Pakistan has received a grant of $ 6.5 million from Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for its Primary Health Program.

“We are very pleased to support the National Commission for Human Development’s efforts to improve rural health in Pakistan,” said Dr David Flemming, Director, Global Health Strategies for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The three main projects to be implemented with these funds include National Oral Rehydration Solution (Nimkol) Project in which 6.75 million mothers in 45 districts across the country will be trained on how to make and administer this simple but effective remedy that can prevent unnecessary child deaths from diarrhea. The national ORS campaign will be formally launched in March 2005. The School Health Program will train school teachers to screen their students for illness and educate them on personal hygiene in 17 districts. The third project to be undertaken with the Gates grant is the proven NCHD model of primary health care focusing on health education preventive measures such as immunization and growth monitoring as well as child spacing. This model employs community outreach through family health workers and will also improve the functioning of the basic health units. Commenting on this grant, National Commission for Human Development Chairman Dr Nasim Ashraf stated, “We are very thankful to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for their confidence in National Commission for Human Development. It is a good breakthrough and will significantly help in our effort to address the health care needs of the rural people in the remote areas of Pakistan.”
According to National Commission for Human Development officials, so far the Commission has mobilized over $ 16 million from private sources since its inception in 2002.
