According to Nabarro, Health Minister Dr Jamal Al-Harbi informed him during their meeting that one of the ministry’s priorities is to lessen the need for overseas treatment.

Nabarro, who has long years of experience in world health and sustainable development, pointed out Kuwait still needs the support of WHO in spite of its remarkable efforts in improving healthcare.
