JS Bank, one of the fastest-growing banks in Pakistan, has partnered with Interactive Research and Development (IRD) to provide free Covid-19 testing services, funded by Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND), to the bank’s frontline staff through WellCheck, IRD’s global corporate health and wellness program.
To clarify, IRD is a research and health delivery organization that creates novel health infrastructures, by leveraging technology and developing capacity with community stakeholders.
It provides quality health care services in areas of infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, and maternal, and child health care across underprivileged communities in Pakistan and over 15 other countries. IRD’s WellCheck team has trained health professionals with extensive experience in diagnostic testing, health service delivery, and capacity building.

JS Bank committed to its employees
Pertinent to mention, this is not the first time that JS Bank has taken such an initiative. Last year, during the peak of Covid, it collaborated with the Government of Sindh and launched a vaccination drive for team members and their families.
The three-day vaccination drive took place at JS Bank’s Head Office at Shaheen Commercial Complex and covered both front and back-end members as well as their loved ones. The activity was a resounding success with long queues of people lined up for the vaccination and was well received by everyone.
JS Bank family members were appreciative of the Bank having undertaken this immunization program and were grateful to the Government of Sindh for facilitating the seamless process.
Day 2 of our COVID- 19 Vaccination Drive saw 500 people receive their vaccinations. Vaccines are being provided to team members and their families.
We encourage you to play your part in flattening the curve!#JSBank #BarhnaHaiAagey #JSCares pic.twitter.com/DUKi0yuIOA
