Pakistan is the world’s sixth-most populous country with a population exceeding 212.7 million people. Approximately, 100 disorders have been reported from across the country, out of which 50 are quite common.
Unfortunately, treatment facilities are available in the country for only a few of these disorders.
“Until now, all over Pakistan, more than 350 cases have been diagnosed of rare disorders but hardly 10 percent of these can be treated locally.”
Most common disorders are not only treatable but these patients can also be able to lead normal lives if the diagnose can be done in a timely manner.
Even in treating conventional diseases, the timely and proper diagnosis is the first step towards the curable treatment.
But due to lack of resources in the country and affordability hurdles, it sometimes even makes difficult for patient’s families to carry out the treatment.
Genetic Testing for Everyone Program by AGCT GENOMICS is the first ever healthcare initiative to make genetic information reachable and accessible for everyone.
So that, everyone can have accurate and proper diagnosis of disease risks.
