Abstract

Abstract Pakistan has one of the highest prevalence of liver and kidney diseases which are responsible for a high level of morbidity and mortality. In order to combat the increasing number of these diseases, the government of Pakistan had to develop healthcare infrastructure. Several organizations have come forward to help the government.

PKLI & RC is a semi-government project that aims to provide free of cost state-of-the-art treatment to the financially stressed people suffering from liver and kidney disorders. Moreover, PKLI & RC provides wide opportunities for research and education to post-graduates and under-graduates. This review article provides a key insight into the aims and background of this institute as well as highlights its performance in the past years. It is clear from the collected data that PKLI & RC is playing a pivotal role in the treatment of liver and kidney diseases along with limiting their spread.
