Making the Death more expensive

This refers to your “Off the Record” Column in May 1st 2013 issue entitled “Making the Death more expensive”. You have touched a subject which is in my heart and soul. I have been emphasizing the same to my students all these years. Well written. I wrote an article on a similar note which was published in a quarterly journal brought by my friend Dr Shahab Sultan, a family physician of Karachi. I am sending that to you separately by email for reading.

Healthcare for the rural population

This refers to the news report regarding organization of a three day medical camp by Mohammad Shafi Educational & Welfare Trust, in a rural area of Tehsil Burewala, District Vehari wherein over two hundred patients suffering from various medical conditions were examined. Health education imparted to the patients visiting the camp, counseling on use of Insulin to the patients with diabetes and emphasis on not to discontinue drug treatment without doctors advice are laudable. Such health promotion activities need to be commended. All this shows that all is not lost. We still have many people who care for others.
