Nowadays, we are coming across many partnerships between Pakistan’s private and public sectors. These collaborations are shaping the future of Pakistan and are going to benefit the citizens in the short and long run. Similarly, Pakistan Railway and Sehat Kahani collaborate to ensure quality health for the employees and passengers.
Sehat Kahani is co-founded by Dr. Sara Saeed Khurram and Dr. Iffat Zafar. The aim behind establishing such a platform was to make health care services available to the local masses. This e-clinic platform saves people from the hassle that they have to endure at a hospital. Through virtual doctor assistance, Sehat Kahani curbs the spread of diseases in communities where medical assistance is not within people’s reach.
Pakistan Railway and Sehat Kahani Partnership
Recently, Sehat Kahani and Pakistan railway has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU). According to the agreement, Sehat Kahani will provide health care facilities to all the retired and current employees of the Pakistan railway along with their families. Moreover, the passengers will also be provided with health care services. Never before we have seen such a private-public partnership where such a large number of people are being catered to provide medical assistance.

Around 7000 doctors are allotted to the project. Along with this many Pakistan railway stations across the country are going to have the infrastructure facilities and services to make the availability of the Sehat Kahani initiative to the employees and travelers. All the required training and information will be given on these ‘On The Go’ clinics. This partnership is surely going to benefit millions of people, revolutionizing Pakistan’s health sector.
The ceremony was attended by important members from the Ministry of Railway and Sehat Kahani. The MoU was signed between the co-founder and CEO of Sehat Kahani Dr. Sara Saeed Khurram and Imran Hayat Khan, Director General of Operations of the Ministry of Railways.
Upon this occasion, Dr. Sara Saeeed said “We are extremely humbled and feel privileged to partner with an institution that has always been serving the nation. We look forward to providing the best of services to the employees and travelers of Pakistan Railways and will hope to expand this collaboration over the years.”
Khalid Gardezi, Pakistan’s Railway Secretary/Chairman who was also present at the ceremony said “We wish that this collaboration goes a long way to benefit our country and its countrymen.”
Such partnerships in the health care sector can improve the quality of health in Pakistan. As health is one of the basic rights of all human beings, these collaborations are surely going to guarantee that every human being is equipped with their fundamental right.
