The Punjab Health Foundation (PHF) was established in 1993 with the prime mandate to provide financial assistance and technical support to the private sector healthcare providers so that they could share the burden of public sector in provision of healthcare services to the general public. The Foundation is an autonomous body, governed by a Board of Directors. The Board is empowered to constitute such number of committees as it deems necessary for carrying forward the objectives of the PHF in any specific area and is currently supported by the finance and technical committees. The autonomy of the Foundation was primarily intended to encourage the concerned Health Professionals for establishing and upgrading health institutions and allied projects. This initiative was an encouraging step of the Government of Punjab towards proactively assisting and promoting the private sector in broadening the overall health coverage to the people of this province.
