Minister of Health Dr Bassel Al-Sabah says the number of expatriate employees of the ministry’s subsidiaries whose ages exceed 55 years old is 3,707, reports Al-Rai daily.

He indicated that the contracts of some of them will not be renewed in line with the Kuwaitization plan but the others will be renewed due to the need of the services and lack of alternative options for doing the same tasks.
