MoH official affirms 99.9% accuracy in AIDS checkup clinic

A senior official at the Ministry of Health affirmed Wednesday that a new clinic for AIDS gives out results with 99.9 percent accuracy. In a statement, assistant undersecretary Dr. Majda Al-Qattan said that the clinic was finally ready to operate after a long period of experiments and coordination.

“This clinic is located at the Communicable Diseases Hospital, in the building of Islamic Medicine, and it operates 24 hours a day with a privacy policy that allows patients to receive their results discretely,” she said. “The clinic does not only provide examinations and checkup, it also provides consultations and awareness about the disease,” she added.
