ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust (SKMT) Karachi hospital will be the biggest and the most modern hospital in Pakistan.

The premier in a tweet said that work on the basement of the hospital is proceeding at a good pace “after a slowdown during the Covid crisis”.

The groundbreaking ceremony of the third Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in Defence Housing Authority (DHA) City was performed by a nine-year-old patient in December 2016.

Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on the occasion said that cancer treatment is much expensive for poverty stricken people as 90 percent of the total population cannot afford it.

He said that Shaukat Khanum is providing free treatment to 75 percent cancer patients.
