Harvard to Develop Medical City in Islamabad

Harvard Medical International (HMI) will build a 60-acre health and education complex in Islamabad to cater to the health and medical needs of the people of the capital and the twin city of Rawalpindi .

The complex is part of a large-scale residential development plan to develop a Health and Education City in the capital, and includes a 500-bed teaching hospital and colleges of medicine, nursing, and dentistry.

Harvard Medical International (HMI) is a subsidiary of the Harvard Medical School set up to help improve the quality of healthcare through better medical education, clinical medicine and biomedical research.

Since its inception in 1994, HMI has created several partnerships with healthcare organisations, academic institutions, governments and NGOs around the world, developing over 50 programmes in more than 30 countries.

According to a Daily Times report, HMI has also entered into a long-term relationship with the Defence Housing Authority, Islamabad, for setting up the medical city.

HMI said although, in recent years, Pakistan has made considerable improvements to its health care infrastructure, the country's supply of high-quality facilities and highly-trained health care professionals is unevenly distributed.

It is also inadequate to serve a nation experiencing such rapid population growth.

"As such, large numbers of Pakistan-trained physicians continue to leave to practice in other countries," HMI said in a statement.
