The establishment of Punjab Health Foundation is a significant initiative of this government and a vital step to actively assist and promote the private sector in providing better, broader and gross root health cover. The Foundation will help to provide financial assistance in urban and rural areas to individual doctors, promote NGOs, encourage health institutions and allied projects for their establishment and upgrade existing facilities and inputs.
The Punjab Health Foundation will be funded initially by the government and will accept endowments, grants-in-aid, donations etc. from domestic as well as international sources. It looks forward to philanthropic participation.
