Welcome to National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases, Larkana

Honorable Chairman, Pakistan Peoples Party, Mr. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has inaugurated NICVD’s first State-of-the-Art satellite centre at Larkana city.

Cardiac health facilities at Larkana:
Cardiovascular diseases represent a relevant problem worldwide. Data from World Health Organization (W.H.O.) demonstrate that they are one of the principle causes of death. The region of Larkana lacked required modern treatment facilities for cardiac patients as most of them were facing severe difficulties for treatment in the city. It was believed that majority of the population in Larkana lives in rural and remote areas with no any state-of-the-art cardiac health facilities. There was an acute need of cardiac modern facilities at Larkana city.
