Support Pakistan's Disaster Affected Communities



CDRS provides emergency relief and mobile medical teams in times of disaster, then supports remote and rural villages with sustainable healthcare services. Our facilities provide primary and preventive care, with a mother-child focus. Lives are saved everyday by having on-site, round-the-clock urgent care facilities, a well-stocked pharmacy. On-going patient education and speciality camps help address chronic conditions and improve the quality of life for disaster affected families

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Three-quarters of the 170 million people in Pakistan live in rural areas where public health facilities are non-operational or poorly managed. Maternal health and infant mortality are abysmal. To address these problems, CDRS is implementing a community-supported healthcare system that provides primary and preventive care, health education, and works with government and partners to re-establish health facilities that were damaged or destroyed by disaster.

How will this project solve this problem?

CDRS health facilities have managed 576,102 patient contacts from Mar 26, 2006 to June 30, 2012. Programs address primary and emergency healthcare, public health, school health and special patients.

Potential Long Term Impact

CDRS empowers communities through healthcare management programs that address chronic conditions and teach families proper hygiene/disease prevention. Our emphasis on community funding and partnership builds systems that are sustainable.
