Tamkeen opens applications for doctors’ support initiatives starting from March 1

Manama, Feb. 28 (BNA): The Tamkeen Labor Fund announced the opening of applications for the recently announced initiatives to support employment and increase the salaries of Bahraini doctors, as of Wednesday, March 1.

The initiatives include supporting the employment of Bahraini doctors and dentists who are recent graduates or job seekers nominated by the Ministry of Labor in private clinics and hospitals with a minimum wage of 800 Bahraini dinars, through a special track to support doctors within the national employment program. The support will include a wage subsidy of 70%, 50% and 30%, respectively, for a period of 3 years.

The second initiative aims to support wage increases for physicians currently working in private sector hospitals, through a dedicated track as part of the training and expansion programme. The subsidy aims to increase the wages of employees whose income is currently less than BD 800, as Tamkeen will subsidize the increase by 100% up to the approved maximum for a period of 12 months.

The third initiative aims to facilitate the employment of local Bahraini competencies in health institutions affiliated with the private sector and to maintain Bahrainization rates of 25% for doctors and dentists working in these institutions. Eligible organizations may apply through Tamkeen’s project support programs and will have the opportunity to increase the grant amount which will be subject to the Bahrainisation rate at the time of application, thus providing appropriate incentives to these organizations.

In addition, the fourth initiative currently under development aims to provide financial support for educational loans in partnership with several local banks, as more details about this support will be announced through Tamkeen’s official channels.
