The public-private partnership programme was used to manufacture the drugs. It enabled the Government to provide the free treatment of cancer to the needy and poor patients.

The United Kingdom Cancer Care has accepted the programme to be presented as an example for the developing countries.

The KPK Health Insurance has majorly helped to achieve this goal. 

15 Billion Rupees have been spent on the free cancer treatment by now.
