Pakistan and Bahrain Wednesday exchanged notes for the establishment of King Hamad University of Nursing and Associated Medical Sciences in Islamabad.

The government has allocated 237 kanals of land on Park Road in Islamabad for the establishment of the proposed university. The land is in close proximity with the National Institute of Health, the Health Service Academy and COMSATS.

When the King of Bahrain Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa visited Pakistan in March 2014, he had graciously offered to establish a state-of-the-art medical institution as a gift from the people of Bahrain with the objective of uplifting the standard of medical education in Pakistan and producing world-class manpower in the field of medical care. The university will cater to 2,000 students with 500 annual admissions. Residential facility will be provided to 1000 female students.

The secretary of the Ministry of National Health Services Muhammad Ayub Sheikh handed over notes to the Bahranian Delegation led by Dr. Shaikha Ranabint Isa bin Daij Al-Khalifa, who also called on minister of State for Health Saira Afzal Tarar here Wednesday. Pakistan’s Ambassador to Bahrain Javed Malik was also present on the occasion.

Welcoming the delegation, Saira talked about the warm brotherly relations between Pakistan and Bahrain and hoped that the state-of-the-art institution would produce top quality professionals in the field of nursing.

Dr. Shaikha Ranabint Isa bin Daij Al-Khalifa said, the government of Bahrain is pleased to support Pakistan in establishing the nursing university. She said her government was keen to strengthen collaboration in the health sector with Pakistan.
