Social protection policies and programs are often recognized as crucial tools for addressing the persistent issue of poverty. The primary goal of social protection is to strengthen the resilience of impoverished individuals facing various economic and social risks.
In light of this, the Punjab Social Protection Authority, as part of the ‘Punjab Ehsaas Program,’ has launched the ‘Nayee Zindagi Program’ specifically designed for Acid Attack Victims. This program is dedicated to rehabilitating Acid Attack survivors through a comprehensive approach that includes reconstructive surgeries and psychological counseling. The ultimate aim is to facilitate their reintegration into society and improve their socio-economic well-being.
The PSPA plans to work closely with the Specialized Healthcare & Medical Education Department to ensure the provision of these essential services, covering the costs associated with treatment.

Participating in a rehabilitation program can mitigate the impact of injuries, enhance overall health and quality of life, and lessen the reliance on healthcare services. Therefore, rehabilitating these victims is crucial in helping them achieve as much independence and productivity as possible within their homes and communities. Empowering victims of acid attacks through institutional support across various domains represents a significant stride towards improving their socio-economic circumstances.
