The country’s ambulance fleet is to be modernized in next year’s budget plan (beginning March 21). Head of Emergency Medicine Hossein Vaezi at the ministry of health, said the plan to identify old ambulances and emergency shortfalls began from 2009 but insufficient funding stood in the way of phasing out old ambulances, ISNA reported. Vaezi hoped that with allocation of a special fund in the 2015-16 budget plan, the inadequacies in emergency medicine would be addressed.
