Chairman of the Private Medical Professions Union Dr Adel Ashkenani highly commended His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah’s instructions to develop domestic medical services and reduce reliance on treatment abroad. “Health sector officials should be fully aware of this instruction by the Amir of wisdom and humanity. We should learn lessons from such statements,” he underlined. Addressing Health Minister Dr Ali Al-Obaidi, Ashkenani said during his meetings with the minister, he detected sincere intentions and efforts to develop health services in general and regulate private health services in particular. “Such intentions need to see light now,” he underlined, calling for getting rid of red tape and bureaucracy in issuing licenses. He also urged the Assembly and its health affairs committee to amend medical laws in order to develop the health sector and attract more investments and international hospitals that “will not operate in Kuwait under current circumstances”, noting that it was high time the private sector played a more important role in developing medical and health services.
