Naya Pakistan application

The Punjab government has launched the Naya Pakistan Qaumi Sehat Card mobile application to provide information on the federal government’s ‘Sehat Sahulat Program.’

Dr. Yasmin Rashid, Punjab’s Health Minister, and senior officials from the provincial health department inaugurated the app in Lahore, according to information.

Dr. Yasmin, who spoke at the occasion, explained that the application has been linked to the National Database Regulatory Authority (NADRA) since individuals’ records with the NADRA are required in order to access healthcare services at all empaneled hospitals in the province.

She went on to say that through the Naya Pakistan Qaumi Sehat card, each family will be given a health card in the name of the family’s head, who will be responsible for registering with the authorities via the application.
