Various kind of infections have conquered the health of local Pakistani’s and due to them thousands of people are dying.
Infections have now become like a school bully to these local Pakistani’s sending them to the doctor’s door. Approximately about 8-9 million people in Pakistan are affected with hepatitis C virus (HCV). This increases the chance of cancer and chronic liver disease. Even people with health education are unable to save themselves from these infections and diseases.
• Each year 410,000 are newly infected and 59,000 die from diseases.
“NO SCIENCE IS IMMUNE TO THE INFECTION OF POLITICS AND THE CORRUPTION OF POWER”-Jacob Bronowski.
As Pakistani is a developing country and Viral infection in Pakistan is increasing. Therefore, it has faced a lot of health problems in Pakistan in the past years. A major reason for this is the terrorism and political conditions of Pakistan. As the conditions worsen the health care system in Pakistan also worsens. Since they have a major effect on the financial, infrastructure and human resources of the healthcare industry. Since it affects the cleanliness’s as well as the equipment’s bought. As Pakistan has a fertility rate of 4.2 million birth rate each year. Therefore, this increases the population of Pakistan.
However, as the fertility of Pakistan increases the mortality rate also increases as thousands of death increases due to the effects of infections such as dengue, malaria, tuberculosis. New born’s don’t even get to see their parents faces properly before their coffins are picked up. Though the new prime minister of Pakistan is taking immediate action to prevent the mortality rate of rising. As he announces another cancer hospital but this one in Karachi, Sindh. The diseases are still able to take thousands of lives.
Measles (Khasra خسرہ )
Khasra also was known as measles is coming back drastically in Pakistan as more and more people are infected by it. This is an infectious viral disease that has always been endemic. However, its cases have increased its incidents in the year 2016 were 16.6 percent but in 2017 they went up to 36.67 percent in Pakistan. WHO post on twitter stated that 32,000 suspected measles cases were reported this year 2018.
The national schedule of Pakistan children between ages nine and sixteen have to be vaccinated. However, the Expanded Program has failed to ensure this. Thus official fear that the actual number of the percent of measles in Pakistan are even higher than the stated 36.67 percent. Health experts agreed and admitted that a nationwide measles camping should have been held. However, due to the poor status of regular in all the provinces except Punjab, it was impossible.
Don’t forget Cancer
How does it feel being a witness to see your very own cook shed tears as her son suffers from cancer? Well, that is the case in the most household in Pakistan as someone or the other has cancer. Whether it be the maid the cook or it might be the owner or daughter/son of the owner of the house. In the majority of the houses, almost everyone suffers from cancer. For some it is recognized at the last stage, therefore, they bid farewell to loved ones forever leaving a tearful mother, father, siblings, relatives or close friends while others get saved as it is detected in its early stages.
Pakistan is the largest populated country with an estimated cancer incident. There are almost 1,48,041 new cases annually. Though these could be prevented just by not smoking or doing water therapy and living a healthier lifestyle. In the past 5 years, there have been almost 1,00,000 cancer-related deaths and 3,50,000 cancer living patient reports.
Therefore, to have a healthier Pakistan we must see to our health care. As these diseases will continue to spread if nothing is done. Therefore, it is our duty to see to our bad habits and improve them. Though it is difficult we must try from our level to be as hygienic as possible so that we are not endangering to these diseases as well.
