14 July 2015
His Excellency the Minister of Health, Eng. Khalid Al-Falih, has given a speech to all staffers of the Ministry of Health (MOH). Here is the wording of Al-Falih’s speech:
Dear brothers and sisters working for the Saudi Ministry of Health:
Peace and blessings of Allah be upon you all;
At the beginning, I would like to greet all of you on the advent of Eid al-Fitr and on this occasion I would like to share happiness with you after our colleague Mr. Hamad bin Muhammad Al-Dowaila was appointed as Vice Minister for Health Affairs in the excellent grade upon a royal decree. There is no doubt that Mr. Al-Dowaila deserves this valuable trust and he will be able to hold this post and related responsibilities successfully. Actually, Mr. Al-Dowaila is one of the most experienced cadres in the health field thanks to his long-term tenure which lasts for more than 30 years, during which he assumed leading positions in the health sector and made a number of achievements.
Brothers and sisters;
I appreciate your unstoppable efforts towards your beloved country as well as your keenness to carry out your business perfectly in this vital field. Actually, the Ministry of Health (MOH) proudly sees you as a cornerstone, through which it carries out its activities and achieves its goals. Of course, you realize that the development process witnessed by the MOH cannot achieve its desirable goals without your effective participation, interaction and cooperation in favor of the coming steps aimed at developing and upgrading services provided by the Ministry of Health. Accordingly, we hope you could double your efforts and creative initiatives in the coming period in order to ensure success of this developmental process in a manner that meets aspirations of the rulers, May Allah protect them, and fulfill the health needs of citizens.
Dear male/female colleagues;
Although the route ahead of us is still long and our endeavors to upgrade healthcare services are boundless, we are confident that the MOH has a sufficient number of capabilities and creative human cadres, who are able to achieve our hopes and aspirations, Allah willing.
As you all know, the MOH is currently passing through an important phase of its developmental process, so we are working along two parallel tracks. In the long term, the Ministry will outline a strategic plan to introduce radical reforms to its businesses, activities and operational styles in line with the latest developments in the fields of management and work methods. In the short and medium terms, the Ministry will exert extra efforts to raise the level of performance in all sectors through increasing productivity and upgrading the level of quality and performance standards.
As part of our bids to achieve this goal, I am pleased to inform you that the MOH Interim Organizational Structure in hand will be effective as of 6/10/1436H (corresponding to July 22nd, 2015) to include the following:
1. Enabling His Excellency the Vice Minister to fully assume his powers and responsibilities for all activities related to health services, including the provision of health services and operation-related activities, whether at the MOH’s headquarters or across the  health regions.
2. Introducing a new agency for planning, health economics and turnaround management to be mainly concerned with the strategic planning for services as well as ways of funding and managing such services, in addition to health economics for the services provided. The agency will prepare also work plans necessary for transforming the MOH’s business ways and styles in a manner that suits the new requirements.
Brothers and sisters;
In conclusion, I pray for our Almighty Allah to protect the leader of our blessed march the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, as well as His Royal Highness the Crown Prince and His Royal Highness the Deputy Crown Prince, and to perpetuate the Kingdom’s stability and security, and make our deeds purely for His sake.
May Allah guide us all to the straight path.
Your Brother;
Eng. Khalid bin Abdulaziz Al-Falih
