The UHI also steps into the Community to create First-Responders by training people in Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and First Aid for the promotion of health at the grassroots level. UHI provides training in Basic Life Support (BLS), Advance Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advance Life Support (PALS).

The ceremony was held in DUHS and the agreement was signed by Arshad Saeed Husain, CEO, Aman Health Care Services and Prof. Mohammad Saeed Quraishy, Vice Chancellor, DOW University of Health and Sciences.
