Free mEDICAL Dispensaries

There is a famous saying; “Whoever saves one human life, it is as if he has saved the entire mankind”.

This statement is one of the guiding principles of Abdul Aleem Khan Foundation (AAKF) and is expressed through the establishment of its most prestigious healthcare project, the Free Medical Dispensaries Project.

This Project commenced in the year 2016. Currently there are Eight (08) dispensaries in Lahore and One (01) in Islamabad. These State of the Art Dispensaries are playing a vital role in changing the lives of the poor and needy people of our community for their betterment. The impoverished areas of Lahore where these dispensaries are located include Munawar Sultana Road, Slide Park Road, Achant Garh, Basti Saidan Shah, Hope Road, Baja Line, Fazalia Colony, and Mian Mir Colony.

Fully complying with the parameters laid down by Punjab Healthcare Commission, these dispensaries are equipped with professional and well-qualified staff and high-quality medicines. The esteemed Brig (Retired) Khalid Bashir is the Project Director. He is assisted by   Dr. Nazar Muhammad, who is the Project Coordinator and Chief Pharmacist and is heading a team of greatly skilled Medical Officers and Paramedical Staff. All Medical Officers are duly registered with Pakistan Medical and Dental Council. Other than that, the paramedical staff are all well-trained and have the prescribed qualifications.

All these dispensaries provide basic healthcare facilities including free consultation and free medicines. The medicines provided by these dispensaries are of very high standards and are from a mix of multinational companies such as Abbott, GSK, Bosh, and, Seral, etc, and, some National companies of high repute.

The timings of our dispensaries are from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. Monday to Saturday.

The procedure is very simple. First, a slip is generated through a computerized system when a patient visits the dispensary. A proper Patient File of each patient is created which contains their previous medical history. The patients record is maintained through proficient computerized system. Each patient undergoes a standard process of check-up in which vital tests are performed including blood pressure and temperature assessments. In case of further need, examination Beds are available for the patients to be examined by the Medical Officers. In case of an emergency, if a specific medicine is not available at the time in the dispensary, then we bear all the costs and purchase it from some medical store.

The deprived citizens of our community can now breath a sigh of relief as they can freely avail of the medical attention they rightfully deserve. Islam has focused on serving humanity selflessly and we strive to make this ideology a reality for the less fortunate and struggling members of our society.

 

This project is currently catering to the needs of more than 40,000 patients per month, and approximately 500,000 patients annually. So, our underprivileged brethren can now live a carefree life once again without the burden of expensive medicines and treatments hanging over them. No person deserves to be left behind when it comes to basic healthcare facilities.
