The ZB Foundation, creating awareness about newborn screening in Pakistan

Summary

Zahra Beau Naqvi, was born with a metabolic, incurable disease that left her in intensive care, fighting for her life. Zahra could have beaten the disease and gone on to live a normal, healthy life if doctors had performed just one simple ‘heel prick’ test to identify the disorder. From this painful experience came the birth of the ZB Foundation, set up by her parents to give other babies the chance that Zahra never had.
