KUWAIT DRAWS UPON CANADIAN EXPERTISE TO OVERHAUL EMERGENCY SERVICES

KUWAIT, Feb 8– Kuwait is seeking to draw upon the Canadian know-how to revamp Kuwaiti health emergency sector.

In the framework of Ministry of Health’s efforts to set up a complete program to improve the emergency services, a Canadian delegation has recently visited several Kuwaiti institutions and listened to scores of proposals submitted by specialists in this regard.

In a statement to KUNA, Ministry of Health’s Assistant Undersecretary for Medical Services Dr. Jamal Al-Harbi said that this move aims to reduce mortality rate among victims of accidents nationwide.

He noted the ministry will send a number of Kuwaiti medics to Canada and receive a number of Canadian experts in Kuwait for training emergency teams, nurses and doctors on the best practices in the domain.
