The government of Saudi Arabia might open up more job opportunities for Kenyan nurses, doctors and allied health professionals.
The matter shaped deliberations between a Kenyan delegation led by Labour Cabinet Secretary Florence Bore, and officials from Saudi Ministry of Health in Riyadh this week.
Bore indicated that the meeting hosted by Deputy Minister for Health, Human Resources in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Abdulrahman A. Al Aiban in Riyadh and which was aimed at exploring opportunities for employment in the country’s health sector ended on a positive note.
“I thank the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for their willingness to consider Kenyan Health workers, especially nurses and physicians who will successfully pass the requisite accreditation process,” said the Labour CS.
The Principal Secretary for Labour and Skills Development Geoffrey Kaituko and her counterpart in the State Department for Diaspora Affairs Roselyn Njogu were part of the Kenyan delegation.
The deliberations between the two sides took place amid recent revelations of increasing demand for health professionals in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
