Roche Diagnostics Pakistan and Telenor Pakistan have joined hands to raise health awareness across the rural and urban areas of the country.
Under the partnership agreement,
Telenor Pakistan will educate its Khushaal Watan app users via interactive voice response (IVR), SMS, and live shows to create awareness about hepatitis and other diseases with high prevalence and burden in Pakistan. Telenor Pakistan operates a suite of digital products and services. These connect people to what matters most.
The Khushal Watan portfolio is a rural lifestyle platform, focusing on m-Agri advisories, rural infotainment, and m-health. The network educates users through its flagship rural health service “Khushaal Sehat” and urban m-health service “Healthline”.

At Roche Diagnostics Pakistan,
Our goal is to help increase public health awareness to support the prevention, early detection, and monitoring of diseases. In this regard, I am proud of our partnership with Telenor Pakistan.
