What We Do

PPHI Sindh's journey is marked by a transformative evolution in the provision of healthcare services across the region. Initially established to address essential primary health care needs, the organization has since expanded its scope to deliver round-the-clock basic obstetric care, achieving a significant milestone by upgrading over 300 Basic Health Units (BHUs) into 24/7 maternity centers. This accomplishment, achieved without additional support from the government of Sindh, positions the province as a trailblazer in Pakistan's healthcare landscape. The transition was guided by data-driven insights, with interventions informed by morbidity and mortality trends. Stricter infection control measures in labor rooms, universal partograph utilization, and the promotion of quality Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) for premature and low-birth weight newborns are among the pivotal strategies employed to enhance maternal health outcomes.

Moreover, PPHI Sindh's commitment to maternal and neonatal health extends beyond childbirth, encompassing comprehensive interventions to address prevalent health challenges. Initiatives such as iron and folic acid supplementation, rational antibiotic use, and the administration of drugs like Misoprostol and Magnesium Sulphate for postpartum hemorrhage and fits management underscore the organization's dedication to ensuring the well-being of mothers and infants. Furthermore, specialized programs targeting neonatal health, including deworming initiatives, the provision of antenatal corticosteroids, and the implementation of birth asphyxia management protocols across a vast network of more than 630 health facilities, demonstrate a holistic approach to addressing health disparities and improving health outcomes across communities.

In parallel, PPHI Sindh places a strong emphasis on family planning services, recognizing the critical role of reproductive health in community well-being. Through a network of 1,358 health facilities equipped with dedicated counseling desks, trained healthcare providers deliver comprehensive family planning support, including the optimization of long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) methods through specialized training programs. Mass public awareness campaigns and targeted health education sessions further empower communities with the knowledge and resources needed to make informed decisions about their reproductive health, reflecting PPHI Sindh's unwavering commitment to promoting holistic well-being and community empowerment.

PPHI Sindh's commitment to holistic health extends to nutrition initiatives aimed at addressing malnutrition and promoting healthy dietary practices across communities. Through targeted interventions, including nutrition education, micronutrient supplementation, and the provision of fortified foods, the organization strives to combat malnutrition and ensure optimal nutritional status, particularly among vulnerable populations such as pregnant women, lactating mothers, and young children. By integrating nutrition services into its existing healthcare framework, PPHI Sindh aims to address the root causes of malnutrition and improve overall health outcomes for individuals and families across the region.

In addition to its primary healthcare services, PPHI Sindh recognizes the importance of secondary care in addressing complex health needs and ensuring comprehensive healthcare delivery. With a network of 45 secondary healthcare facilities strategically located across the province, the organization provides access to specialized medical services, diagnostic capabilities, and advanced treatments for a wide range of health conditions. These facilities serve as vital hubs for specialized care, offering a continuum of services that complement the primary healthcare infrastructure and contribute to improved health outcomes for patients requiring more intensive medical interventions.

PPHI Sindh's proactive approach to combating infectious diseases includes targeted initiatives to address hepatitis and tuberculosis (TB) prevalence in the region. Through comprehensive screening, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention programs, the organization aims to reduce the burden of these diseases and prevent their transmission within communities. By leveraging its extensive healthcare network and collaborating with governmental and non-governmental partners, PPHI Sindh implements evidence-based interventions to raise awareness, improve access to care, and enhance surveillance and monitoring efforts for hepatitis and TB, ultimately contributing to the control and eventual eradication of these infectious diseases.

Furthermore, PPHI Sindh's conditional cash transfer initiatives aim to address socioeconomic determinants of health and improve healthcare access for marginalized populations. By providing financial incentives to vulnerable individuals and families who meet specific health-related criteria, such as attending prenatal care visits, completing vaccination schedules, or participating in health education sessions, the organization promotes preventive healthcare practices and incentivizes positive health behaviors. These initiatives not only enhance health outcomes but also empower individuals and families to actively engage in their own health and well-being, fostering a culture of health promotion and disease prevention within communities.
