Ikhlaq Zameer's Story
38-year-old Ikhlaq Zameer has been diagnosed with hepatitis C. He has been taking homeopathic treatments for this but due to a lack of adequate allopathic healthcare, his disease progressed and he developed severe body aches. Finally, Ikhlaq consulted a specialist, who has advised a medication course of three months.
Ikhlaq works as a daily wager, earning 500-600 PKR/day, or an average of 12,000 PKR/month. He lives in a small house passed on to him by his parents with his wife and two of his children, all of whom are dependent on him for sustenance. Despite his deteriorating health, Ikhlaq cannot afford to take time off from work because he loses out on his daily wage.
“Missing a single day’s work means my family goes hungry. Basically everything I earn in a day goes towards buying food and other basic necessities for the house. So I have neither the money to pay for treatment, nor the time to take days off to find a doctor who can treat me for free.” – Ikhlaq Zameer
