(MENAFN - Arab Times) Kuwait Heath Ministry Undersecretary for Technical Affairs Dr Khalid Al-Sahlawi has announced that a delegation will head to Pakistan Sunday to interview and hire physicians for primary health care centers.
In statements to KUNA, Al-Sahlawi said that the recruitment trip comes within the framework of long-standing cooperation between Kuwaiti-Pakistani health ministries.
He added that the Pakistani physicians are well-trained and well-qualified.
"Over 230 applications were submitted to the Kuwaiti Embassy in Pakistan and the Health Ministry officials have reviewed them," he said, noting that nearly 100 applicants have the qualifications required by the ministry.
