Two years ago a plan was launched to increase the number of specialized polyclinics across the country. Currently, the construction of 252 polyclinics is underway and they will be completed by the end of the year (March 2017), said Mohammad Aghajani, deputy minister of health for treatment. “So far, 40% of the funding for the projects has been allocated and the remaining will be provided during the current fiscal year,” IRNA quoted him as saying. There are 850 full-fledged hospitals in Iran of which 540 are state-run.
