  KMC introduce first Metropolitan Awards for Nurses.  
  Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhtar said in order to bring improvement in health care sector we need 60 thousand nurses as our country presently have one nurse for every 1069 people. KMC has taken many measures to solve the problems facing by the nursing staff in hospitals and for this letters also written to the Government of Sindh so their promotion, allowances and other issues could be solved. On taking charge of KMC we got different departments in very bad condition, specially the medical and health department was in deteriorating condition and almost inactive. We tried to bring as much improvement in this sector as we could and make the hospitals operational while being within the available resources. My doors are open for everyone and we all will solve such problems mutually. He expressed these views while speaking as chief guest in the First Metropolitan Nursing Awards Ceremony held in a local hotel by KMC under coordination with Pakistan Nurses Forum. The program was also attended by the municipal commissioner Dr. Saif-ur-Rehman, chairperson medical committee Naheed Fatima, senior director health and medical services Dr. Beerbal, senator Abdul Haseeb Khan, chairman of Pakistan Nurses Forum Saleem Michael, Nadeem Shaikh Advocate, M.S of Civil Hospital Dr. Taufiq Ahmed, Nuzhat Shireen, director nursing Habibullah, Siddiqa Nizami, Khair-un-Nisa and others. During this program performance awards were given to the nursing staff of KMC, DMCs and other hospitals of Karachi. Mayor Karachi also cut a cake on this occasion and nursing staff presented a tableau to give the message in an impressive way about the services rendered by nurses to patients. Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhtar on this occasion said Mayor Karachi said nursing is considered basic part of health care in any country. In Pakistan Begum Rana Liaquat Ali Khan put the foundation of nursing profession in 1949, however, though this profession received lot of respect and dignity all over the world, nurses were unfortunately not getting their due status and respect in our country. He said availability of only a nurse for per 1069 people in Pakistan is no doubt a serious issue and should be getting attention so that number of nurses could increase in our country. He said he had written letters to the Sindh Government for solving problems facing by the nursing staff in KMC hospitals. First Nursing Awards being given to the staff performing duty in 13 major KMC hospitals and medical institutions working under DMCs along with other hospitals of the city. Next year we have this plan to include all nursing staff of Karachi for nomination of this award. Mayor Karachi said various plans were being executed to uplift the city infrastructure and such works would provide considerable benefits to the citizens of Karachi. He said we are continuously working to provide maximum municipal services to the people of Karachi. People have given us their votes so that their problems are solved and we are working on different projects to achieve this target. He said besides carrying out development works their monitoring was also ensured so that these projects could prove beneficial for the people of Karachi. In the end chairman of Pakistan Nurses Forum Salim Michael thanked Mayor Karachi for supporting the Nursing staff in Karachi and making sure that first metropolitan awards be introduced for nurses so they could perform their services in an even better way in our hospitals. He said that International Nurses Day is an international day celebrated around the world on 12 May of each year, to mark the contributions nurses make to society.
