Karachi: Governor Sindh, Dr Ishrat Ul Ebad Khan Sunday called on Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani here at Governor House to apprise him regarding Lady Health Workers’ salary and regularisation issue. The Prime Minister assured him that LHWs’ problems would be resolved and in this connection immediate steps would be taken. He also appreciated the governor’s efforts in dealing with LHWs and doctors issues intelligently.
It was pointed out that the department of Lady Health Workers has not yet been devolved to the province and because of this such a problem has arisen.
The Governor said that he would try to get LHWs’ services regularized in three months time. The Lady Health Workers Programme is active since 1994 and has a prominent place in the health sector. The effort of the government is that this programme should continue with consistency so that its benefits could reach the people at grassroots level.
