Mercy Corps' strategy in Pakistan is to address the urgent issues of economic development, public health service delivery, and effective relief and recovery from natural disasters and conflict. Economic growth in Pakistan is constrained by the ongoing regional instability and conflict, which contributes to domestic instability and violence in much of the country. Rates of tuberculosis (TB), maternal and child mortality, and malnutrition are some of the highest in south Asia. Better governance remains a critical need for equitable development.
