This Program functions as a support program for the implementation of Health and Education initiatives. Volunteers are identified through meetings at Union Council and District levels with the stakeholders and are given training in the implementation of program activities. Each district has registered volunteers providing support in monitoring, trainings, advocacy and resource mobilization.

 

NCHD has always relied on its volunteers’ support over the years. These volunteers developed National Volunteer Corps, Forum of philanthropists, and generated Resources worth Rs. 43 million (13 million in cash and 30 million in kind).

 

The Commission has organized several successful conferences and events. Some of them are listed below:

 

  • First ever International Conference on the ‘Role of Volunteers in Achieving MDGs’ in December 2005
  • 1,876 medical camps, in which 333,066 patients were treated and free medicines worth Rs32.97 million were donated by philanthropists
  • Volunteer Medical Station (VMS) at each District Headquarters' Hospital in 2006. Financial support worth Rs. 4.8 million was generated for the deserving patients and 11,753 bottles of blood were arranged by the volunteers
