PHCC has emphasized that after 120 days of the blockade, its 23 health centres, continue to provide normal services, noting that the medical teams provide health service without any discrimination. “PHCC health centres are providing health services as usual, we are committed providing primary health care services to all people in the country, including all GCC nationals. 

Our Corporation follows values and ethics as well as provide quality healthcare services to whoever in need without any discrimination,” Primary Health Care Corporation said in a statement.
