MMfD Comments:

The health department responded to the information request but the records it provided did not completely answer the queries in the request. Instead of providing district-wise statistics of sanctioned and working medical staff at KP BHUs, the department sent aggregate numbers for the entire province and rank- and position-wise breakdown of paramedical, nursing and medical specialist staff. This meant we could not draw the district-wise comparisons of vacant positions. Only three districts (Peshawar, Mardan, and Abbottabad) separately provided the complete details for their individual districts. The department, however, provided the total number of BHUs in each district.
