With the signing of the Abraham Accords in 2020, Israel and Bahrain normalized their relations, which opened up many new possibilities.
The Bahrain Supreme Council of Health recently chose Sheba Medical Center to lead medical cooperation between the two countries. Subsequently, groundbreaking medical collaboration agreements were reached with two large hospitals in Bahrain: Salmaniya Medical Complex and King Hamad University Hospital.
According to Sheba Global Director, Yoel Hareven, who led the Sheba delegation sent to Bahrain to sign the landmark accords: “This is a historic opportunity to establish meaningful relations with the Kingdom of Bahrain. The cooperation with the Bahraini healthcare sector will expand in the next months to include medical care, mainly via Sheba’s virtual hospital, Sheba Beyond, as well as medical staff training, joint research projects, and more.”
