Resuscitating primary health care services in Pakistan and integrating vertical (TB) programme service delivery: experiences in setting up a public-private partnership model that has provided free treatment to 22 million patients

Dr Riaz Memon is a senior civil servant and head of PPHI Sindh, a public-private partnership which has been contacted to run primary health services for a province with a population of 30 million. With 100s of healthcare facilities that have served 22 million patients to date, he runs one of the world’s largest networks of contracted primary healthcare services, and is now expanding services to include TB.
