Pakistanis struggle for cancer treatment

Only one hospital in the country provides cancer treatment for Pakistan's poor.

    Around 150,000 cases of cancer are reported in Pakistan every year.

    Despite the many medical facilities in the country, only one hospital has a suitable cancer treatment programme.
