An important partnership which AIMS is currently part of is that with the Diabetes Association of KPK Click here. AIMS is currently managing the services being provided in the Peshawar Diabetes Hospital. The building and the land itself is owned by the Diabetes Association KPK. More than 20 years ago, Prof. Surgeon Muhammad Kabir took the initiative to build a Specialised Diabetes Hospital. With help from philanthropists & WHO, they were able to raise the required funds to build the Hospital. In 2003 AIMS had agreed to help in this endeavour via an MOU with the Diabetes Association KPK. The details of the plan can be found here Click here...

Community Diabetes Camps – Private Individuals 1998 onwards

One of AIMS’s greatest achievements is the consistent and ongoing Community Monthly Diabetes Camps throughout KPK since 1998, please click here for some photos.

  • AIMS has partnered with various private individuals to bring monthly medical camps to their respective villages.

  • The private individual agrees to pay for the expenditure of the camp once a month and also agrees to provide a local contact in the village. In 1998, the cost was approximately 3000 PKR for 1 event. This has risen to 20,000 PKR nowadays.

  • With the help of the local contact, a doctor, nurse, dispenser and social worker set up in a easily accessible location within the village by 0900. They aim to see 50-60 patients by 1300.

  • In some villages few patients also help with the expenditure by donating 50-100 PKR.
