Atif Zafar is a top physician leader in the US and Canada

It all started with the story of our founder Dr. Atif Zafar who, after completing his medical education in Pakistan, went on to pursue his medical specialization in the US. One day, after a 36-hour in-hospital shift he received a grieving call from his father in Karachi, “Tumhari Ammi ko doctors ne cancer diagnose kia hai.” Atif was overwhelmed with shock, distress, and a feeling of utter helplessness, sitting thousands of miles away from the family he loved and valued so much, especially at a time when they needed him the most.
Wracked with guilt, Atif made the reluctant decision to abandon his training in the US to attend to his mother. Just before he left, he got in touch with a few of his physician friends who were in Karachi at the time. They reassured Atif that he need not leave the US; they would proceed with the arduous task of arranging all the necessary appointments and tests for a second opinion with an oncologist in his stead. To Atif’s relief, his friends came through. Upon evaluation and review of previous scans, it turned out that his mother’s uterine mass was a benign growth that had been present on previous scans as well. Relieved and grateful beyond words, Atif resolved at that time to help others who were in a similar situation. So that others would never have to feel that sense of helplessness in arranging appropriate medical care for their loved ones when they cannot be physically present with them.
Thus, an idea was born. The idea to create a platform offering comprehensive health care coordinated service for parents and loved ones back home in Pakistan. Several years later Dr. Atif Zafar and his colleagues have created Human-Healthcare.com, a unique venture placing your families front and center.

Dr. Shoib Ghayas, the chief medical officer of the startup shares, “As I was working abroad and miles away from Pakistan, I was concerned for the health, well-being of my parents and their access to adequate health care. The Covid-19 Pandemic hit me while I was working as a Family Physician in England. It was shocking news for me when I came to know my father had severe COVID-19 infection during peak of pandemic. I travelled back to Pakistan at risk of losing my job, leaving behind my wife and daughter in the UK to spend a couple of months in Karachi focusing on my father’s health. Alhamdulillah, he recovered, but it was a challenging time for our family and my professional life. Although I was fortunate enough to do so, I have heard many stories of expats struggling to travel back home due to work, visa, or household commitments. We have launched Human-Healthcare.com as we acknowledge how overseas Pakistani are balancing their careers, family life abroad, along with ensuring that parents are well cared back in Pakistan. The Human-Healthcare.com team is working on a model to provide the best care our parents need”.
