The Martin Dow Group chairman, Ali Akhai and Group MD & CEO, Javed Ghulam Mohammad called on Prime Minister Imran Khan and apprised him about the potential of Pakistan’s pharmaceutical industry.

They also shared details about pharmaceutical sector’s role in contributing to the economy of Pakistan. Martin Dow Group appreciated the commitment of prime minister to establish Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre (SKMCH&RC) in Karachi and offered its support in the construction of two bone marrow transplant rooms in the hospital.

Speaking on the occasion, Ali Akhai said, “We praise the initiative of Prime Minister Imran Khan for his unremitting and sincere efforts for developing and expanding Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre that provides free treatment to cancer patients in the country.

Without this facility a number of patients would not have access to treatment as it is expensive and unaffordable for the common people.” Akhai further opined that as a socially responsible entity, every organisation should come forward and take the initiatives to develop more hospitals in Pakistan for the welfare of people.
