Contech Private has piloted a successful “life-cycle approach” in private service delivery through its pioneering work in district of Qasur. The model proposes a wide range of activities including the provision of health services, health education, gender mainstreaming and livelihood support. The focal point of the model is the Mobile Health Clinic (MHC) which houses diagnostic, treatment, and referral facilities, as well as a trained doctor and support staff.
