Potential collaborations in health systems would be with the Federal Ministries of Health and Population Welfare and the Planning and Development Commission, and also the respective provincial departments. However, other ministries such as women development, youth affairs, social welfare and education can also be the important partners of our division. Potential collaborators for r esearch may include Pakistan Medical Research Council, National Institute of Pakistan Studies and Population Council. International NGOs, donors, bilateral organisations and UN agencies also prospectively can be reached out for various endeavours.
