MoH lays comprehensive health services plan
KUWAIT CITY, July 30: The Ministry of Health has laid down a comprehensive health services plan for pilgrims this year, reports Annahar daily.
The plan consists of three phases: the first phase includes services before Hajj such as vaccination, issuance of health cards to pilgrims, and providing the required training for members and officials of Hajj caravans.
The second phase includes provision of medicines, equipment and transportation; while the third consists of services after Hajj like the provision of preventive medicines to protect the pilgrims from epidemics. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health has terminated the services of 200 male and female expatriate nurses who are more than 65 years old and are on second contract, reports Al- Anba daily.
The ministry granted these nurses a grace period of three months to complete their procedures. This is in line with the decision of Health Minister Dr Bassel Al-Sabah (number 61/2018) to terminate the services of expatriates who are more than 65 years old, except the doctors.
