Impact Factor of
Pakistani Bio Medical
Journals (2019)

Dear Shaukat,

What a news of the year to experience that Pakistan Journal of Medical Sciences (PJMS) retains the No. 1 position of having the highest Impact Factor among the medical journals in Pakistan for the fourth consecutive year and is heading towards the galaxy of journals to enlighten mankind with science and reason! Congratulations with best wishes and may future have all the best in store for you. Wish our country could follow you to have the culture of parties and parliament to be representative of the public instead of elitism and nepotism being patented.

Americanization of health services

I read with interest the manuscript titled: “Americanization of Health Services will be a serious threat to healthcare delivery in Pakistan” published in June 15th issue of Pulse International Vol. 20 No. 12.

The present Government has initiated reforms from tertiary care. While we need to start from step one i.e the primary health care, community health services and patient with centered health system. By ignoring step one of primary care and step two of secondary care, we will not make head way in tertiary care. I fail to understand what will happen to the poor patients of our society in the next ten years down the line.

Never push your
enemies to the Wall

Dear Shaukat Sahib,

An excellent article under OFF THE RECORD in 1st July issue of Pulse International on the above mentioned title. In fact you have opened your heart out on certain important and crucial issues confronted by the medical education in Pakistan.

The examples of doyens and legends of medical profession in Pakistan are eye openers for those who are at the helm of affairs now. All of them mentioned in this write-up were people of inimitable character which must be emulated by the present lot. The most unfortunate part with us is that we don’t learn from history, unlike developed societies, where all important decisions are taken in the historical perspective. I suggest that our medical institutions include in their curriculum the landmark decisions which these legends took during their tenure.

Prevailing situation in Pakistan

It grieved me to hear about the uncomfortable working environment and the prevailing conditions in the country as a whole. It is also disappointing to see blank pages in Pulse International where Cartoon, Poetry, and Letters should regularly be. Letters do not have to be in praise of some workshop, Pulse International or you yourself. Members of the medical fraternity can, and ought to, write to educate one another, to encourage good professional conduct, and to discuss social and medical issues with the general public in mind as their audience. Waiting for a change, without doing much to bring it about, is a dream at best.
