Hospital waste causing
This is deplorable that DHQ hospital Chitral burns its waste in open space. Every week
the residents of adjacent village Zargarandeh suffer from smoke
and bad smell for at least for 18 hours. Due to this unhygienic
practice people are prone to a number of diseases, such as
Hepatitis, Cancer, Pulmonary infections and
I appeal to Environmental Protection Agency of
Pakistan to move Environmental Court against the hospital
administration. It is worth mentioning that
Aga Khan hospital system has introduced incinerators for
safe disposal of hospital waste. Our Government can also
replicate the system for the sake of
public health and hygiene.

Strange! Hospitals are supposed to cure diseases,
not cause them.
