About Us

Our Story

Koohi Goth was initiated when Dr Atia Zafar, after migrating to Pakistan in 1948, could not bear to see the horrific suffering of poor women in the country. She decided to change their destiny and started her educational career with the help of her husband Syed Abu Zafar. There was a time when she and her eldest son, Dr Syed Tipu Sultan, were studying medicine at the Dow Medical College, Karachi at the same time.

After completing her doctorate, Dr Atia Zafar initiated her medical career by establishing a small clinic in 1965. This clinic, with time turned into the Atia General Hospital. After the success of the Atia General Hospital, Dr Atia focused on her ambition to establish an institute that solely focuses on women’s health. This was the beginning of Koohi Goth Hospital.


Our Mission

Improving access to routine obstetrical care and providing lifesaving support to pregnant women who die because of un availability of skilled staff and drugs.

We Understand Requirements

Starting from an ambitious dream of a woman, Koohi Goth Hospital is today the hub of health care facilities to millions of underprivileged patients.

We Work Precisely ​

Koohi Goth Women Hospital focused on the taboo disease known as the Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF), Recto Vaginal Fistula (RVF) and other gynae related problems, today this facility provides general healthcare to a vast number of patients other than RVF and VVF patients. The deserving patients receive free medical care including the surgeries, food, medicine, testing and stay during the recovery process.

We Deliver Best Output​

Koohi Goth Women Hospital is the only charity fistula treatment center in South Asia, providing state of the art laparoscopy surgery and fistula management training.

Our Vision

To develop a hospital for vulnerable communities where state of art health services will be available free of cost to the poor women and children.

Dr Shershah Syed, the president of Pakistan National forum on women health & Koohi Goth Women Hospital, is the biggest strength of this entire project. His experience and a long history of treating women with Obstetric Fistula is not only limited to Pakistan. He has performed countless surgeries all over the world. His passion to help give rise to a healthier nation brought him back to the country where he engaged in providing full time services to Koohi Goth Women Hospital. Under his leadership, Koohi Goth Women Hospital has caught the attention of several internationally renowned surgeons that often visit the facility and perform surgeries completely free of cost.

Their mission is to ensure good health especially for these women by eradicating such complications which are now non-existent in the developed world. We are not only focusing on medical facilities for poor patients but also ensuring the reach of medical care to women in remote and under developed areas.
