New Medical Facility for Athletes Opened at Social Centre

The Minimum Medical Requirements Facility at the Social Center was inaugurated by the President, Dr. Muizzu. He inspected the medical treatment facility once the opening ceremony had been completed.
The President also watched the exhibition basketball match held to open this year's basketball season at the Social Centre. The ceremony was also attended by Sports Minister Abdullah Rafiu and other state officials.
The objectives of establishing mandatory medical provision facilities at national and international sporting event venues include ensuring that a player, official or spectator is equipped to assist in the event of a situation requiring medical first aid.
In addition, if such a situation occurs, providing immediate treatment and ensuring that safe transportation to a hospital or emergency treatment facility is arranged as soon as possible.
The government's 14 Week Plan includes developing health services standards for national and international sporting events.
