She indicated 970 people of both sexes from different residential areas will be chosen for a medical test which will be carried out at the Qortuba Health Center

In a press statement, she said, the minimum age of people who are eligible for test in 19. She added the survey is aimed at identifying the factors which cause non-infectious chronic diseases such as cardiac diseases, diabetes and respiratory ailments. She stressed on the importance of collaboration with the staff in charge of the survey by the citizens. She disclosed the length of the program is three months. In another development, sources disclosed a coordination meeting will be held over the next few days with representatives of the concerned ministries and authorities which are in charge of carrying out new construction projects such as at the Ministry of Public Works, the Kuwait Municipality, the Ministry of Electricity and Water, the Ministry of Communications and the Environment of Public Authority



Sources said the meeting will be tasked with preparing an integral report, in line with instructions given by HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak, to identify the obstacles which impede the implementation of the development projects. Sources also said, the report will be referred to the Prime Minister once it is completed. In another development, Director of Zain Center for Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Surgery Dr Basil Al-Sabah announced the inauguration of a new audio clinic at Amiri Hospital in May, reports Al-Anba daily. Al-Sabah disclosed this is one of several projects in the pipeline to decentralize specialties in Sabah Health District

Sources said another ENT center will be inaugurated at Mubarak Al-Kaber Hospital in July. They added the hospital administration has been constructing the center to accommodate five clinics for ear, nose and throat; in addition to the existing two clinics. They disclosed one of the two existing clinics has been shut down for construction works while the other one is operational.
