The Baloch Yakjehti Committee, part of the “Unity Movement”, recently hosted a medical camp, drawing in 189 attendees. A significant portion, 154 individuals, comprised women and children seeking medical assistance. The camp identified various health concerns, with several patients facing worsened chronic conditions.

Of notable concern, 37% of all patients and 78% of women experienced gynecological emergencies, encompassing issues such as infertility, menorrhagia, dysmenorrhea, PID, UTI, and STDs. Respiratory and autoimmune diseases were also prevalent, affecting a considerable number of attendees.

Among pediatric patients, 47% dealt with conditions like gastritis, URTI, LRTI, and skin diseases. Surprisingly, some individuals with lifestyle-related contradictions displayed hypertension and diabetes. Short-stay treatment was provided for nineteen patients.

Regrettably, one lady in respiratory distress requiring nebulization couldn’t receive assistance due to electricity unavailability. While only six people initially registered with scabies, it was later discovered that many more were affected. This highlights the challenges Pak-occupied-Balochistan faces. The lack of medical care and infrastructure is astounding. The elderly are grappling with major health issues, receiving no help from the authorities.

In such dire circumstances, BYC’s effort in organizing the medical camp and serving the community is commendable. Their efforts are shedding light on existing challenges that need urgent intervention. Balochistan has been forcefully occupied by the Pak Army, and since then, the helpless Baloch community has faced innumerable atrocities at the hands of the Pak Army. They endure house raids, abductions, enforced disappearances, indiscriminate killings, and dumpings.
