A thread of basic info on Sehat Sahulat Program aka Naya Pakistan Qaumi "Sehat Card"
What is the Sehat Sahulat Program: It is a health insurance scheme by the govt of Pakistan via State Life Insurance. Started in 2015 in KP by PTI in 4 districts it steadily increased and in 2018
it covered all of KPs population, while increasing amount of medical coverage from 4 to 10 lakh/family. Initially it was based on a poverty survey of 2011 which left out poor people. That is why, despite the great cost, govt has decided to make it available to all Pakistanis.
