Expatriates in Kuwait will now have to pay a fee of 10 Kuwait Dinar ($33) when getting medical treatment at a polyclinic, the health ministry said on Wednesday.

The measure aims to ease congestion at public hospitals while allowing government-run clinics to take in more patients, the ministry said in a statement.

On a related note, the ministry had assembled national committees dealing with adolescent healthcare to prevent drug abuse and addiction, while another ad hoc committee was formed to look into road traffic safety.
