Pakistan Government’s Crackdown On NGOs Harming Access To Health Care, Aid Workers Say

IRIN: Pakistan’s NGO crackdown prompts widening alarm among aid workers
“…Pakistan’s government has slapped punitive taxes on NGOs, threatened to shut down international organizations that don’t meet opaque new registration requirements, and launched a separate graft investigation across the sector. International NGOs work in key sectors including disaster response and health in [rural] places like Bhagwal, where government services don’t always reach. Advocates warn that millions of people across the country could face new risks…” (Saeed, 3/6).
