About 1,000 ‘health houses’ were built across the country during the current year (ends March 20), said Mohammad Ali Hemmati, deputy of the treatment center at the Social Security Organization (SSO).

One of the programs implemented under the ‘Health Reform Plan’, launched in May 2014, was the promotion of health houses, IRNA reported.

The health houses, conceived and introduced during the 1980–1988 war with Iraq, have been at the centre of a so-called master plan to bring health care to every district, including rural areas.
