As per a memorandum of understanding signed between the Health Ministry and the Setad (a special office for executing the decrees of Imam Khomeini in helping the underprivileged), a total of 88 new health facilities will be set up in Sistan-Baluchistan Province.

Comprehensive healthcare centers as well as medical and health stations will be provided in both urban and rural areas of the province, IRNA reported.

The southeastern province is the most underdeveloped and deprived region in the country and its remoteness from the capital has undermined its potentials.

The project will be undertaken by Barekat Foundation (affiliated to the Setad and dedicated to creating entrepreneurs, building schools and infrastructural facilities in remote and underdeveloped regions) on a budget of 630 billion rials ($18 million).
