KARACHI: Pakistan’s premier energy company, Byco Petroleum Pakistan Limited, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) today with Sehat Kahani to provide telemedicine facilities, through remote medical consultations, for Byco’s workforce of over 800 employees and their immediate families. The signing ceremony was held at Byco’s Head Office in Karachi.
The MoU was signed by Mr Azfar Saeed Baig, Byco’s Vice President, and Dr Iffat Zafar Aga, Co-Founder & COO, Sehat Kahani, with senior executives from both organizations.
“Byco considers its employees to be its greatest asset. Due to COVID-19, getting health care and visiting doctors physically is still a challenge. Byco has therefore partnered with Sehat Kahani so that our staff can be treated through remote consultations. Sehat Kahani has 24/7 availability of certified doctors.” said Mr Baig.
Under the MoU, Byco’s employees will be able to access online consultations with accredited doctors, not only for themselves, but also for their dependents, including their spouse, children, and parents.
Sehat Kahani, a health-tech social enterprise under the leadership of Dr Sara Saeed Khurram, its CEO and co-founder, aims to democratise healthcare, making it accessible for all using telemedicine and a network of online doctors.
