Plan to train 10m citizens in life-saving skills launched at AKU

16 February 2020

The Pakistan Life Savers Programme (PLSP) - a nationwide initiative to train 10 million citizens in life-saving skills - was launched by an alliance of public and private healthcare institutions at the 5th AKU Annual Surgical Conference on 15 February in Karachi. "Besides imparting lifesaving skills, the PLSP seeks to instil a sense of leadership and civic responsibility. Each reventable death represents an enormous loss to our country and PLSP seeks to empower Pakistanis to protect their loved ones and fellow citizens from harm,” said Dr Junaid Razzak, Director of AKU’s Centre of Excellence for Trauma and Emergencies.
