Abstract

Abstract This study examines the difficulties in instituting a viable system to provide health care facilities in Pakistan. Distribution patterns of existing facilities reveal serious inadequacies related to planning deficiencies, lack of capital, and disregard for socio-cultural factors. Whenever possible, health service development planning must be based on the needs of the population.
