BIDE is one of the eight (08) centres of the world, which are designated as International Diabetes Federation (IDF) Centre of Education.
As a non-profit organization, BIDE is serving unprivileged community under Baqai Foundation in health sector. The Institute besides its educational role also caters for the need of ailing persons in the form of clinical services. Their state of art Laboratory services ensure the best consultation of patients.
BIDE recently approached Ihsan Trust to replace their main clinical chemistry analyzer “Selectra Junior” which had completed its life and needed immediate replacement. Approximately 75% - 80% of their main workload was being performed on Selectra Junior, which comes to around 10,000 tests per annum. Ihsan Trust on most urgent basis provided/donated BIDE this equipment worth around Rs 2.0 M (Rupees Two Million) from M/S-MERCK International.
The new equipment has been installed and started working. It was formally inaugurated on Sept 05, 2013. This will help BIDE to help them in continuity of their working & ensuring valued services for community in General.
Ihsan Trust has also signed MOU with BIDE to provide Qarz e Hasna facility to the doctors doing One (01) year specialized Diploma in Diabetology from BIDE.
