Pakistan doctors express concern over health department's conditions

The Baloch Doctors’ Forum (BDF) has expressed concern over the health department's condition in the province and said no one is taking responsibility to improve the situation.

After seeing the miserable condition of the health department in the province, it seems the department has no head, a spokesman for the recently-formed Baloch Doctors Forum said on Sunday as quoted by Dawn News.

The head of the department is supposed to be a minister, but the minister appears to have been forcibly given this ministry as he has shown no interest in the department’s affairs since day one and he is just waiting for his term to end, the BDF alleged.

Similarly, other officers also take no interest in health department’s affairs to the extent that even a simple leave application remains pending for months without any action being taken on it, the BDF said.

The BDF said only the work of political and influential individuals has been given priority.

“A mafia has made the health department hostage as some individuals, hiding behind a doctors’ organisation, are using blackmail and bargaining to obtain personal benefits from the department,” the spokesman was quoted as saying by Dawn News.
