Sindh Govt Introduced Free Ambulance Service in Karachi

The government of Sindh, in conjunction with the Aman Foundation, set up a free ambulance service in Karachi.

The Aman Foundation last year signed an initial public-private partnership (PPP) model agreement in December. Under the agreement, the foundation provided 60 of his ambulances for this service, available for free.

Government will run this service in conjunction with the Patient Assistance Foundation (PAF). These ambulances will transport patients from the hospital to the home and vice versa.

All expenses will be covered by the provincial government. Citizens can use the service by calling the Aman Foundation 1021 ambulance helpline.

Prime Minister Murad Ali Shah Sindh announced the project in December 2018. He said the government would take care of Aman ambulances working in Karachi in conjunction with PAF in the first phase.

While the expansion of ambulances will be 60-200 in the second phase by the end of 2019, it should be noted here that the World Health Organization (WHO) prescribed at least one ambulance for every 100,000 people. However, there is only one ambulance available for 300,000 people in Karachi.
