About Khyber Teaching Hospital - Peshawar
Khyber Teaching Hospital (KTH) Peshawar has been providing tertiary health and teaching facilities to local population in KP ever since 1976. Established over a covered area of 962,000 square feet on busy Jamrud Road, this 1202 bed hospital caters for the health requirements of over 500,000 patients an year. However with massive increase in urban population during Afghan war (1978-98), its ability to serve the local population has been seriously impaired. The local population has also grown manifolds admission and treatment facilities domestically. Coupled with presence of 0.6 million Afghan refugees and their rush on this hospital, the institution seems over burdened given its present physical size, administrative human resource and financial position.
