ISLAMABAD: The US Agency for International Development (USAID) has signed three project commitment letters with the federal ministry of national health services and Sindh health department, committing budgetary support for health projects in the country.

USAID mission director John Groarke, National Health Services secretary Muhammad Ayub Shaikh, health services academy executive director Dr Assad Hafeez and Sindh health secretary Dr Fazlullah Pechuho signed the commitment letters on behalf of their governments here on Wednesday.

The projects aim to strengthen provincial health and population departments planning and reform, improve the use of data to inform public health planning in Sindh and support faculty development and research at the Health Services Academy.

Proper and effective health facilities are the most desideratum for public and is crucial for its immediate provision. The signing of three health commitment agreements is scrupulous efforts of the personnel and spiritually implementation of them will cause a great resilience for the miserable people.

Why not supporting local institute in Sindh for faculty development like Dow institute of public health or liaquat university of health sciences or Chandka Medical College. Why pouring funds in Health Services Academy Islamabad to train faculty from Sindh and spend thousands of dollars on living cost and transport.

Wake up Pakistanis ! are you sure that USAID wants to help, or they are here to help themselves, by spying for other reasons, I would tell them " you are no longer welcome", we have money and skills to take care of our people....
