King Hammad University of Nursing and Associate Medical Sciences will begin next month after finalizing all arrangements for the Ministry of National Health Services
Through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has granted land of about 5500 square feet to Pakistan’s first nursing university in #Islamabad
Dr. Asad Hafiz, director general of the health ministry, said in an interview. “The construction cost is estimated at about $ 16 million, contract of the university has been given and construction work will begin next month,”
King of Bahrain Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa offered to establish a state-of-the-art medical institution as a gift from his country during his visit to Pakistan in March 2014. It was decided that Pakistan would arrange the land and utility services for the university and Bahrain would fund its construction.
A Bahraini delegation, led by Dr. Shaikha Rana Bint Isa Bin Daij Al-Khalifa, then assistant under-secretary for Arab and Afro-Asian Affairs, visited Islamabad in July 2016 to finalize the project and signed an MoU with Pakistan’s ministry of health.
