Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has decided to establish a modern health laboratory in Peshawar on the pattern of National Health Laboratory Islamabad.
The World Health Organization and National Institute of Health Islamabad will provide technical assistance and equipment for this purpose.
The provincial government has allocated one hundred and fifty million rupees for establishment of the laboratory which will start functioning in October this year.
This will reduce burden on NIH which currently receives samples from the whole country as well as Afghanistan.
