KP Gets its First Burns and Trauma Center

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Mahmood Khan has inaugurated the province’s first, state-of-the-art burns and trauma center on Tuesday.

While addressing the media, he said that the government was criticized for inaccessibility to medical facilities for burn patients in the province. Therefore, it has established a modern, 12-bed center solely for this purpose.

While answering a question on the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project, the CM said, “You will witness [development] on March 23.”

Provincial Health Minister Hisham Inamullah said, “If people want to criticize us then the criticism should be made in positive aspects.” He said that the center has provided treatment for burns and post-operative recuperation facilities to at least 2000 patients.

Notably, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has funded the construction of the burns and trauma center while the project has been carried out by the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA).

A KP government spokesperson told the media that this project sprawled over 20 canals and incurred a cost of Rs. 2.6 billion and was built with assistance from the USAID in October last year.
