As part of its strategy and in line with Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, Nahdi signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Charitable Health Society for Patients Care (ENAYAH) to support the organisation’s medical convoys in the Riyadh region.
Under the MoU, several charity projects and initiatives will be implemented to provide comprehensive healthcare services for needy patients. The agreement embodies Nahdi’s desire to expand its community healthcare services under the umbrella of the Ministry of Health.
ENAYAH Chairman, Dr. Abdulrahman bin Abdulaziz Al Swailem, and Nahdi CEO, engineer Yasser Joharji, signed the MoU.
Commenting on the agreement, Joharji said: “Nahdi seeks to reach the largest number of people, particularly diabetics, to promote awareness and provide health education services through its successful programme ‘Ya Ana Yal Sukkary’, which was launched in cooperation with the Ministry of Health and Joslin Diabetes Centre. The MoU with ENAYAH serves that purpose.”
He added: “At Nahdi, we are guided by Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, including plans to expand healthcare services to all segments of the society. Our strategy has come a long way to fulfil our goal of becoming a community pharmacy.”
For his part, Swailem expressed his delight at the signing of the MoU, which serves poor and needy patients by dispensing medication through ENAYAH convoys touring the Riyadh region. “We are happy to partner with Nahdi, which has succeeded in raising awareness on health issues in the country. Under the agreement, we will work together in serving the community and ensuring its welfare, to ultimately help achieve Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.”
ENAYA and Nahdi agreed to cooperate to implement healthcare initiatives and support ENAYAH medical convoys. Services include diabetes early detection tests as well as medication worth SAR 45,000 for three convoys. Medicines will be dispensed free of charge, while each convoy will be accompanied by a pharmacist and diabetes educator. In cooperation with the Ministry of Health and Joslin Diabetes Centre, patients will receive free services as well as diabetes education by well-qualified pharmacists. Also, a diabetes expert will be assigned to ENAYAH’s medical complex to help patients.
