PESHAWER:Dr Javaid 51, fell critically ill on April 10 and was shifted to the ICU where he was put on a ventilator. His colleagues fought valiantly to save his life but to no avail. He left behind three children, a daughter and two sons.
Born on September 15, 1967 in Abazae village Charsadda Abazae, he did his MBBS from Khyber Medical College, Peshawar, in 1991 and obtained FCPS degree in ear nose and throat (ENT) from College of Physicians in 1998 and a degree in the same specialty from The Royal College of Surgeons, England in 2003.
He started his teaching career in Lady Reading Hospital, Peshawar, as senior registrar in May 2005 and was posted as Assistant Professor HMC in January 2006 where he reached rank of professor. Dr Javaid had more than 16 publications to his credit.
HMC Medical Director Prof Shehzad Akbar Khan described him as a true professional, thorough gentleman, trusted friend and a dedicated family person whose absence would always be felt.
“Prof Javaid was the motivational force behind the CCF that we had established a month ago to effectively manage the Covid-19 patients. He led from the front and visited the patients frequently,” the director said.
KP Chief Minster Mahmood Khan along with Chief Secretary Dr Kazim Niaz visited the HMC where they offered condolences with Dr Javaid’s colleagues and assured the health professionals of government support.
“The government will strongly recommend Dr Javaid for the highest civilian award for his brave fight against Covid-19. We will not leave his family alone,” the CM was later quoted by a press release issued from the HMC.
