Prime Minister’s Special Assistant Sania Nishtar on Social Protection and Poverty Alleviation Wednesday said that ‘Ehsaas Strategy’ was at the last stage of scrutiny and would soon be in the public domain as an evolutionary document.
She outlined ongoing projects to involve the private sector in “Ehsaas”, which includes 115 political actions that will be implemented by 28 federal ministries / divisions / agencies.
To the extent of Ehsaas, she said there are three avenues to work with the private sector.
“These avenues included, regular contracting following the policies and procedures of PIPRA in ways that promote transparency, private sector commitments for big-ticket targets of social protection and poverty alleviation policy, and , Solutions Innovation Challenge to develop value chains and solutions for poverty at scale by identifying private sector partners.”
At the start of the day, Dr. Sania Nishtar urged the private sector to play its part in helping Pakistan achieve the sustainable development goal of eliminating viral hepatitis as a threat to public health by 2030.
At a ceremony in Islamabad, Dr. Sania Nishtar said, “We hope to eliminate viral hepatitis in Pakistan by promoting public-private Collaboration”.
In a statement released by the ministry, she said it was an important area to focus on as the disease was overbidding poor and marginalized people who typically suffered from weak health systems and practices.
