Pakistan's President Dr Arif Alvi has stressed the need for technological expertise in the healthcare system, saying that the country’s healthcare system must focus on the preventive side of illness rather than the curative. He made these remarks at a meeting of the senior leadership of the Aga Khan University (AKU) at the AKU’s Centre for Innovation in Medical Education over the weekend. During the meeting, he encouraged the AKU’s faculty and doctors to form a group of visionary thinkers to enhance the healthcare system. The president was earlier briefed on the AKU’s social impact as a national asset by providing services in basic education, outreach health services, examination system and research. Dr Alvi acknowledged the AKU’s services as an icon for Pakistan’s leading hospitals.
