NA passes Pakistan Health Research Council bill unanimously

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The National Assembly Friday passed the Pakistan Health Research Council Bill, 2015 unanimously paying way for reconstitution and re-organization of the Pakistan Health Research Council.


Parliamentary Secretary for National Health Services, Regulations and Coordination Dr Darshan piloted the Pakistan Health Research Council Bill, 2015 in the House.

The statement and objects of the bill says Supreme Court of Pakistan in appeal No 154 of 1988, directed that bodies set-up through Resolutions are not bodies corporate but are government departments and their employees are civil servants.

In order to give legal status of bodies corporate, Establishment Division issued a procedure for implementation by the concerned ministries/divisions.

In order to carry out its mandate and academic based research pursuits effectively, the erstwhile Ministry of Health agreed that Pakistan Medical Research Council should continue as an autonomous organization. However, it may be re-named as the Pakistan Health Research Council (PHRC).

The Management Services Wing of the Establishment Division has also agreed to the re-constitution of PMRC as PHRC with a legal status of body corporate through an Act of the Parliament.
