Established in 1998, SINA’s mission is to make quality primary healthcare affordable and accessible. Primary healthcare is the first line of defense against illness that manifest into life-threatening diseases, which can not only debilitate a person’s quality of life but can have lasting effects on their livelihood and families. In addition, communities that have easy access to primary healthcare are proven to thrive, and reduce strain on government resources such as hospitals and emergency rooms.With this mission in mind, in the past 24 years, SINA has expanded from one clinic to thirty-three clinics. All our clinics are located in slums of Karachi, in over 22 union councils, places often overlooked due to their distance from the city’s epicenter. However, these slum areas are home to over 40% of the city’s population, an exorbitant number of whom are living below the poverty line, often not having enough money for food.
Our clinics provide the slum communities with reliable, quality primary healthcare doctors, lab tests, and medicines, all for the minimal cost of Rs. 50. Comparatively, this money would not even be enough for bus fare to the nearest hospital. Since inception we have helped millions of people from something as simple as a common cold to helping them manage chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. And just last year we had close to 1 million patients come to our clinics, hitting our all-time annual record. In 2022, we plan to expand our reach and further optimize our processes to ensure that every person in Pakistan is provided healthcare.
Join us in making healthcare accessible for all and change a million lives.
