Earlier today, Prime Minister Imran Khan launched a COVID-19 Telehealth Service Portal (www.telehealth.gov.pk), to connect volunteer doctors to Pakistani citizens who may be experiencing symptoms or need guidance from professional healthcare providers.
With the collaborated effort of Digital Pakistan and the Ministry of National Health Services, Regulations & Coordination (NHSRC), Telehealth Services Portal has been setup.
Pakistan is the first country in the world where the government is launching a free of cost telehealth service through Whatsapp. This service will help people connect with domestic and overseas doctors on WhatsApp to help with COVID-19 health concerns.
The Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mr. Imran Khan, urged his nation’s doctors to register with the portal. He termed the health care professionals of Pakistan as ‘warriors’, fighting to protect their fellow citizens from harm.
