Mr. Jawad Ahmad Qureshi, CEO PPIF
We, at the Punjab Population Innovation Fund, would like to extend our heartfelt concerns to all of those affected by COVID-19. The World Health Organization has declared this outbreak a pandemic with far reaching health implications worldwide. Consequently, the Govt of Punjab has declared a strict lockdown of the province to ensure the safety of all citizens.
The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be well informed about Covid-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. we are entering a period where the threat we face requires us to collectively practice social and physical distancing and all other precautionary measures outlined by WHO and Government of Pakistan.
Disease outbreaks often effect women disproportionately and pandemics make existing inequalities for women and girls and discrimination of others extremely poor and marginalized groups much worse. in moment like these access to health centers and family planing is essential to people’s livelihood. our field activities are temporarily suspended to ensure the safety of our employees, partners and beneficiaries until further notice from the Government of Punjab.
However, we are doing our best to keep you informed with regular updates on the unfolding situation, safety and cleanliness measures as outlined by the relevant authorities.
Today we must rise to accept our responsibility as citizens of the Pakistan and remember that we are all in this together to beat this!
With prayers and best wishes
Jawad Ahmed Qureshi
