Key Initiatives

Pakistan like other developing countries is in the midst of an epidemic of non-communicable diseases especially cardiovascular diseases, while the burden of communicable diseases is still very much present. This double burden makes the challenges of population awareness of prevention all the more critically important for stake holders. This is why the work of the PCS and he ACC Pakistan Chapter is so important.
