An overwhelming joy fills the country, commemorating the eighty-third National Day of the unification of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. On this occasion, we wish to express our affection for this country, declare allegiance to its leadership, and express happiness over the graces of security and the social, and economical welfare, which have been realized by Allah's blessings, and the efforts of the leaders of this blessed country and its faithful citizens.
It is every citizen' right to boast and take pride in what our country witnesses of developmental achievements covering the entire life aspects. It was launched by the founding King Abdulaziz bin Abdurrahman bin Faisal Al-Saud, May Allah rest his soul in peace. Later, his sons take the helm of the state's march of building and prosperity, till the prosperous reign of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, may Allah protect him.
Moreover, the ordinary man of this country got the focal interest in all the state's developmental and cultural plans and programs, in terms of education, qualification, and training in all fields, through spreading the giant university towns, industrial cities; and saving, investment, and housing funds.
It is worth mentioning that the health sector is among the most prominent development aspects which the Kingdom witnesses, thanks to Allah's grace and the support, care, and interest it receives from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques,  King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, His Royal Highness Crown Prince, and His Royal Highness the Second Deputy Prime Minister, may Allah protect and support them.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) has played a vital role in providing health services with the highest global quality levels, fulfilling our governors' aspirations, may Allah protect them, and meeting the needs of our respectable citizens in our dear country.
Moreover, the MOH launched its ten-year health strategy plan "1430-1440H". It aims at laying down the institutional work approach, raising the quality level, assessing and monitoring performance, recruiting qualified cadres, developing human resources, along with advancing the e-health and information systems. That is to be added to the optimal usage of resources and applying the healthcare economies and their financing sources .
This plan is based on the National Project for Integrated and Comprehensive Healthcare, which focuses on the principles of measurement, standard, quality and easy delivery of a service; in order to bring justice and inclusiveness for the entire Kingdom's regions. It is also built upon the concept of justice, inclusiveness and global and national standards that guarantee implementation of such highly-elevated concepts directed by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, His Royal Highness Crown Prince, and His Royal Highness the Second Deputy Prime Minister, may Allah protect and support them, to the effect that a citizen's health and care are to be the main concern.
Within the framework of this strategy and the National Project for the Integrated and Comprehensive Healthcare, the Ministry of Health began to carry out a number of medical cities in the entire Kingdom's region, which when finished; will be a true addition to the health services system. Such cities are to include referral hospitals, specialized research and medical centers providing health services of the 4th level, with a bed capacity reaching 6200 referral beds. Further, the MOH initiated new qualitative programs; to serve citizens, improve the MOH's performance, quality, and safety standards, reconstruct the collective and institutional work approach, and attract remarkable cadres.
