[Editorial] Khan faces tough test as Pakistan’s new Prime Minister

Imran Khan is expected to take oath as Pakistan’s new Prime Minister on Aug 14, after his Tehreek-e-Insaf party swept to victory with widespread support in the country’s recent election. Khan inherits a nation riddled with corruption and facing a grave economic crisis, with loan defaults looming and a bailout from the International Monetary Fund looking inevitable. Coupled with the country’s dismal performance on key health-related indicators, improving the state of health in Pakistan will be a difficult task.
