PRIDE Project Annual Report


Primary Healthcare Revitalization, Integration and Decentralization in Earthquake-affected Areas (PRIDE) is a USAID-funded project to improve primary healthcare services and health outcomes in Bagh and Mansehra districts.

PRIDE came into being in the aftermath of the earthquake that struck northern Pakistan on 8 October 2005, bringing devastation to a 30,000 sq. km. area, killing 75,000 people and leaving 3.5 million homeless. Loss of habitat and infrastructure was enormous: 600,000 homes, 6,000 schools, and nearly 800 health facilities were destroyed.
