The national health network expansion under the 2014 Health Reform Plan is on track in almost all the provinces except Tehran, said deputy health minister Ali Akbar Sayyari.”That means we now have one health station for every 12,500 people in all cities and rural regions,” he said, Health Ministry’s news agency ‘Webda’ reported. A total of 2,400 health projects including healthcare centers and rural health houses have so far been set up under the plan.”Another 2,500 will be completed by the end of the current administration’s tenure in mid-2017,” he said. Progress has been slower in the extensive Tehran Province due to the large number of people living in unofficial settlements.
