In a statement issued today, Wednesday, the ministry announced that Kuwait hosted a Gulf workshop for the technical committee members on training for the evaluation and accreditation of medical examination centers, organized by the Health Council for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries.

The statement elaborated that the workshop, in coordination with the Public Health Sector of the Ministry, discussed the most recent amendments and additions to the new regulatory guidelines for expatriate medical examinations. It also encompassed discussions on the accreditation standards for medical examination centers.

The ministry further emphasized that the workshop aimed to enhance the regulatory guidelines and improve the assessment process of labor examination centers, with the objective of enhancing the quality of the examination process and ensuring the accuracy of its results. Participants in the workshop were also trained on how to evaluate examination centers effectively.

The Ministry of Health explained that the program for examining expatriate workers seeks to ensure the fitness and health of the incoming labor force, free from chronic diseases that pose an economic burden and also free from infectious diseases that could endanger both contact persons and society before entering the GCC countries.

The Ministry highlighted the importance of such meetings in strengthening common relationships, deepening ties between GCC countries, and enhancing cooperative frameworks, with the aim of achieving the highest levels of quality and excellence in preventive, curative, and rehabilitation healthcare services for the citizens of the GCC countries.

This is accomplished by developing a joint Gulf health system to establish health requirements, and medical examination regulations for expatriates, and defining clinical examinations, laboratory tests, and radiological examinations to ensure their physical and mental health, and their freedom from diseases, particularly infectious ones, which could pose a threat to the safety and security of the Gulf community.
