President Mamnoon Hussain has said the government is extending health facilities to the low-income group though it had been a difficult task to provide health services in a populous country like Pakistan.

In a meeting with President Royal College of Physicians Professor Derek Bell who met him along with a delegation at Aiwan-e-Sadr, he said the cooperation of Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh with Pakistani Medical Colleges and universities should be increased to enhance the professional capabilities of Pakistani doctors.
