Saudi Arabia begins to localise key health sectors

Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (MHRSD) announced on Monday the start of the implementation of Saudization in some key health sectors.

These include 60 percent Saudization in health specialisation professions, 30 percent localization of engineering and technical professions in medical appliances, and 40 percent Saudization in the sales and medical appliances and supplies professions throughout the Kingdom.

The decision to localize professions in the medical appliances sector included the Saudization of sales and advertising professions and the introduction of medical appliances and supplies in two phases: first by 40 percent and in the second phase by 80 percent.

It also includes training job seekers, transportation allowance to and from the workplace, moving allowance from one city to another, and childcare allowance to increase participation of mothers and allowance for working remotely to encourage new work patterns.
