Abstract

Assalam o Alaikum! My name is Asif Hasan. I am a heart surgeon, specializing in congenital heart surgery. My day-to-day work is in congenital heart surgery, particularly trans-plantation in children and adults. But I have been involved in trying to set up units and help surgeons in many countries across the world. I find that challenge of helping to get a unit up on the ground in various countries very satisfying. And I am happy that in quite a few institutions that has taken off. Although, I have also found success and failure. I would like to touch on some of the failures I have had, to try give some clues about how we can make successful programmes. I am here, in Windsor, on the 10th of December, (2019), and I wish you all a very wonderful meeting and I hope that you can come together and make provisions for trying to imp-rove the quality of healthcare in Pakistan.
