Members of the Turkish and Pakistani communities launched an annual joint healthcare project between Ankara and Islamabad on Monday in the Turkey’s capital.

At a meeting in Ankara, promoters of the Ibn Sina Alliance (ISA) said the annual project aimed to learn and transfer human capital and knowledge between the two countries.

“We have launched several study and policy-making groups which will help us understand the gaps and deficiencies in the healthcare system in the two countries and then see how the two countries can cooperate and learn from each other’s experiences,” said Dr. Kemal Aydin of the ISA.
