Power of social media & Free HLA Typing Test

This is the power of social media & patient support!!

This father contacted me yesterday and told me that they need to get HLA typing test done, they are in Islamabad and the test will cost 1 lac in Shifa hospital. Is there anything I can do? Or can I refer to any hospital where it is less costly.

I knew Faiza Ijaz is involved in Bone Marrow Transplant center in Islamabad and she would be the perfect person to guide. With Faiza permission I sent her number to him.

And this is what I received in my inbox 

HLA typing class I and II high resolution cost around 1 lac in private hospital. You can get done in free or subsidized cost in Dr Akbar Niazi Teaching Hospital, this is such a big relief and very rarely people know about it.

Thank you so much Faiza!!
