With a population of almost 396,000, Mardan is the second largest district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Mardan is famous for its archeological sites. A large number of its residents are facing different health conditions such as cholera, Hepatitis A/B/C, acute liver inflammation, acute diarrhea, respiratory disorders, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiac failures, and anemia in pregnant women. Many of these health problems are treatable but people continue to suffer because they don’t have access to quality healthcare facilities.
