Project Brief: Women in Central FATA are facing many hardships because of cultural barriers and overall deprivation. This calls for immediate action to empower women by opening up new avenues for economic uplift. To address such a need, the aim of this information-sharing project was to equip the Lady Health Visitors with use of computer and internet thus to effectively maintain their patient records and case histories for future referrals. Further; they were taught internet surfing to access modern techniques of healthcare and scientific practices of preservation of health and prevention of diseases.
