Introduction

The Burns Centre is established at the Jubilee Block, Civil Hospital under the patronage of a philanthropic group; Friends of Burns Centre (Patients’ Welfare Society), in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Government of Sindh. The first Burns Centre in Pakistan, to operate according to international standards, is a state-of-the-art project and is a model of public-private participation.

The Centre has the modern operation theatres, emergency treatment facility, intensive care unit and a 24-hour clinical laboratory. All these diagnostic and treatment facilities are provided completely free to those poor and needy burn patients who cannot afford the extremely high treatment costs.

Previously, the Burns Ward of the Civil Hospital Karachi was the only burns unit in Pakistan. It used to provide treatment to patients from Sindh, Balochistan, Punjab, NWFP and neighbouring countries. The department managed approximately 20,000 patients per year, with an average of around 500-600 in-patients with severe burns, annually. Unfortunately, with the alarming rise in cases of burns, the Burns Ward had become insufficient to fulfill all the requirements and there was the urgent need to upgrade the Burns Unit into a full-fledged Burns Care Centre and Centre of Excellence.

Thus, to bring hope for the burn patients, the Burns Centre has now been relocated at the more spacious heritage protected building; Jubilee Block within the Civil Hospital Karachi.
