Aga Khan Health Service, Pakistan (AKHS, P) aspires to see a world with healthy population and without health inequity. It wants people to have access to affordable and functional health services during sickness. Mental illness is an underdiagnosed and undertreated health problem in poor countries and poor populations. The involvement of community health workers has the potential to address mental health problems in a feasible and appropriate manner, especially in disadvantaged and isolated communities.
