PANAH was conceived (and nurtured) by the visionary Cardiologist, Gen Zulfiqar Ali Khan and was formalized by a Presidential note by the then president Gen Zia Ul Haq in 1984,
who became its first Patron in Chief and a clause in PANAH’s constitution makes the President of the country its Patron in Chief by virtue of his position. It is a great honor to have Major General (Retd) Masud-Ur-Rehman Kiani, Hilal-e-Imtiaz Military, Stiara-e-Imtiaz, Tamgha-e-Bisalat as president PANAH.
The basic aim of this association was to educate the general public and spread information about causation and spread of the coronary artery disease, the epidemically spreading, devastatingly fatal and disabler & the most expensive disease to diagnose and treat.Secondly to train people in saving many a life by resuscitating (CPR-BLS) cardiac arrest victims on the spot.
Recently PANAH has decided to build a state of the art “Heart House” on a piece of land given free of cost in Bahria Town by Mr. Malik Riaz Hussain –The Cahirman Bahria Town. We wish best of luck to PANAH and Bahria Town.
We are all keen to watch the video PANAH has brought for us:
“Harkat-e-dil nohae Zindagi”
It is the first film on Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in Pakistan and also in any underdeveloped country. It has already been translated into Pashto. This film has been made according to the human psyche by dramatizing in a flashback
