During the last two years, there was issue within the government as to how expats are supposed to avail healthcare elsewhere other than what the government offers, but now that a new insurance scheme has been set in place, expats will have the option to receive healthcare in line with the insurance scheme observed by the government.
With everything almost set up and good to go, the only thing now is to address how these services will be ready for its intended community.
Dhaman Recruits Staff to Run Primary Clinics in Kuwait
The Health Assurance Hospitals Company (Dhaman) is currently looking to fill in various posts needed to run the company’s primary healthcare clinics and hospitals and medical departments and technical and backup service staff needed for IT and administrative affairs, as shared in a report by the Kuwait Times.
At this point, Dhaman has already completed preparing and equipping primary care clinics, which are currently running on a trial basis to assess their readiness to provide medical services.
Dhaman was set up as a public-private-partnership (PPP) entity to establish hospitals and clinics that would provide health and medical services for Kuwait’s large expat community. In line with its vision, the company also intends to set up public medical facilities that would exclusively cater to Kuwaiti citizens in the long run.
At present, this is a good sign as to how the government is still considering how it would address its stong expat community and their needs as residents in the country.
And while there’s nothing final yet, especially that the government is still pushing for its Kuwaitization scheme in both public and private sectors, it is safe to say that the government truly understands that they can really never remove expats out of the equation, or at least not anytime soon.
