Welcome to Baqai Medical University
The Baqais( Dr.Fareed Uddin Baqai and Dr.Zahida Baqai) both medical
practitioners and surgeons by profession, after completing their medical education in Pakistan and
Great Britain, started practicing the art of healing in an underdeveloped country and in a fast
growing city of Karachi.
The enormity and complexity of health care problems and the paucity
of proper infrastructures for health care delivery systems motivated them to develop a comprehensive
concept of community development on the basis of self reliance and without depending upon the public
The concept started unfolding itself in concrete actions when the
Baqai Foundation acquired a large piece of land on Super Highway just at the outskirts of Karachi
and established the first ever rural Medical Centre supported by secondary and tertiary health care
facilities in 1976.
