National Institute of Child Health

8th Symposium on 27th -28th April 2024



The National Institute of Child Health has a remarkable story to tell, and as the Professor of Pediatric Surgery and Head, Section of Pediatric Surgery Unit-A, I am eager to share it with anyone who wants to associate in the best interest of this extraordinary institution.

The Institute had its beginnings at the Pediatric Surgery Unit in Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center (JPMC) for years. In 1979, President Zia-ul-Haq visited the School of Pediatrics, on the request of the senior administrative authorities and declared it as the National Institute of Child Health (NICH). In April 1990, NICH was separated from JPMC, and made an attached department of the Federal Ministry of Health. Prof. Nizam ul Hassan, the senior pediatric surgeon of the country, was made its first director.
