of the five contiguous suburban settlements around Multan viz. Qasim Bela,
Muhammad pur Ghotta, Langarial, Arjwain Sharif, and Jalilpur. Though it is
mainly a mother and child healthcare centre, yet there are a number of integrated
activities emanating from it. For example through this project not only services in
MCH sector are delivered but in basic and primary healthcare are also being
rendered. The centre has also developed strong referral linkages with the tertiary
level health facilities.
