Aster DM Healthcare has signed a contract with Faruk Medical City (FMC), Iraq’s healthcare service provider, to collaborate on capability development and academic and professional training programmes for clinical staff and healthcare professionals in Iraq.

FMC is a part of Faruk Investment Group – one of the investment groups in Iraq.

Through this partnership, doctors from Aster DM Healthcare will visit FMC’s facilities to consult and provide surgical services which are not locally available and for which patients have to travel overseas.

Both organisations will jointly provide training and academic support to medical and paramedical staff of FMC hospital.

Aster will also play an advisory role in guiding FMC to apply for international accreditation.

Faruk Investment Group and Aster have also signed a Memorandum of Understanding to explore potential collaboration opportunities to expand Aster Pharmacy’s services to Iraq, including the distribution and retail of pharmaceutical and wellness products.

Dr Azad Moopen, founder chairman and managing director, Aster DM Healthcare, stated: “We are pleased to partner with FMC Kurdistan to support the clinical operations and academic programmes at FMC Hospitals, Sulaimaniya. With decades of experience in providing tertiary and quaternary patient care, Aster is well placed to provide comprehensive training to health care professionals in Iraq. Our expert doctors shall also visit FMC regularly to participate in patient care.”

Faruk Mustafa Rasool, founder and chairman of Faruk Investment Group and Faruk Medical City said: “With Aster, we will build synergies on all medical and administrative levels to improve hospital operations and clinical services through the joining of the strengths of Faruk Investment Group’s 45-year-long history in business leadership in Iraq, Faruk Medical City’s strong presence and brand presence as a leader in healthcare services in Iraq, and Aster through their successful 36-years-long leadership in healthcare provision in the GCC and India. We are envisaging further developing the healthcare sector in Iraq through active contribution to medical education in the fields of Nursing, and Biomedical sciences”.
