The newborn mortality rate in Pakistan in 46/1000. Even in a city like Karachi, government, private and charitable hospitals are unable to provide quality and affordable intensive care medical facilities to newborn. Dua Foundation has established a nursery in the center of the city – at Bilquis Naz Medical Centre, where ten incubators and 6 ventilators have been provided at a time. The presence of a number of pediatricians and trained nursing staff ensures the quality of medical treatment being provided here. The daily cost of an incubator treatment per day in PKR 3500, whereas the charges of a ventilator are PKR 6000 per day. In other hospitals of the city such facilities are charged at PKR 15,000 to PKP 30000 per day. Those who cannot afford to bear the cost of these subsidized rated are facilitated treatment for their newborn through Donation/ Zakat fund. No non-affording patient is refused treatment.
