Ten hospitals with 1,200 hospital beds will be established by September 2017, by the Health Ministry in cooperation with Barekat Foundation (affiliated to Setad which is a special office for executing the decrees of Imam Khomeini in helping the underprivileged).

“The Setad has so far delivered on four of the 10 hospitals promised earlier this year under a memorandum of understanding with the Health Ministry,” said Mohammad Mokhber, head of the organization, Mehr News Agency reported.

The number of hospital beds was 1.7 per 1000 people in 2015 in the country, and the figure is expected to increase to 2.7 per 1000 by the end of the current government’s tenure later this year.
