Pakistani Ambassador Visit to Al Salam International Hospital

Chairman of the Kuwait Private Hospital Federation and CEO of Al Salam International Hospital Dr. Ayman Al Mutawa welcomed the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to Kuwait Malik Muhammad Farooq and his accompanying delegation on a special visit to the hospital.

During the visit, they discussed various ways of cooperation between the Kuwait Private Hospital Federation and the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in the private health sector, one of which is in the process of attracting and recruiting of medical & nursing professionals.

Dr. Ayman Al Mutawa praised the role of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in supporting Kuwait’s healthcare sector during the COVID-19 pandemic especially by sending medical personnel to work alongside Kuwaiti medics to provide the necessary medical care in government hospitals in Kuwait. This great move of solidarity has led to the employment of at least 2,800 medical and nursing staff in Kuwait’s government hospitals, a direction the private health sector is eager to work towards achieving so similar talent can be employed to work at their end.

In addition, His Excellency stressed the important role the Pakistani Embassy would play to ensure that highly skilled medical personnel are recruited through government accredited channels in a smooth seamless way.

On his part, the Chairman of the Kuwait Private Hospital Federation confirmed that such interactions between officials and representatives of friendly countries to the private health sector is a fundamental cornerstone for establishing the rules of cooperation and supporting efforts between the two countries in the field of health care. They represent an important opportunity to learn and identify challenges and opportunities available in this field and agree on venues for future cooperation.

At the end of the meeting, Dr. Ayman Al Mutawa presented His Excellency Malik Muhammad Farooq with a memento to commemorate his visit to the hospital, wishing him continued health and wellness as well as progress and prosperity to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
