PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa govt on Friday gave Sehat Insaf Card accounts to associates of the transgender local community to home address medical problems being facing by the marginalized part of societies. The health care cards were given during a function held at the Peshawar Press Club.
On the time, Sehat Sahulat Programme plan director Dr. Mohammad Riaz Tanoli said that the provincial government was prepared to developing the level of the transgender community.
He declared that transgender individuals were reportedly experiencing medical care disparities and the health department’s stage to provide them with Sehat Insaf Cards would end any such discrimination. On the time, the team members of TransAction Alliance and Blue Veins also shared their views.
The organizers declared that under the latest schedule the Sehat Insaf Card would give free-of-cost coverage for HIV/AIDS and most cancers tests and treatment. The method will offer healthcare protection of Rs400,000 per family for tertiary care illnesses such as treatment of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, emergency and trauma, fractures and head and spinal injuries as well as joint alternative surgical treatments. Farzana Jan, president of TransAction Alliance, declared on the occasion that under the Transgender Person’s Security of Legal Rights Act, 2018, it was unlawful to deny medical care solutions to the transgender community.
Qamar Naseem, the programme coordinator of Blue Veins, cherished the initiative taken by the government to support the transgender community and declared that the transgender human population continued to face leading challenges in getting appropriate healthcare facilities. Taimur Kamal, the coordinator of Pakhtunkhwa Civil Society Network, said the health cards would help alleviate poverty and protect weak segments of society by improving their access to medical care services.
