Ministry of Health set to introduce stricter controls in treatment abroad regulations

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 14: Health sources have disclosed that the Ministry of Health is on the verge of finalizing amendments to the regulations governing treatment abroad, featuring enhanced controls.

According to the sources, the forthcoming list of delegation cases will be exclusively reserved for situations where treatment is unavailable in the Ministry’s hospitals. This primarily pertains to cancer cases and surgeries deemed incurable and critical, subject to approval by the Supreme Committee.

The sources emphasized the significant progress made by the technical committees responsible for these amendments, expressing expectations that the revised regulations will be unveiled either by the end of this year or at the beginning of the next.

Notably, the amendments are set to incorporate stringent controls to ensure that scholarship cases are allocated to deserving individuals. The sources underscored a noticeable decline in scholarship cases this year, totaling 2,815 by the end of July as opposed to the 4,230 cases recorded in the previous year. The upcoming changes aim to streamline the process and maintain a judicious allocation of resources for those in genuine need of medical support abroad.
