BAHRAIN - Agreement with Israel in Health Sector

Arno Froese

Israel and Bahrain signed a program for cooperation in the health sector during Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz’s visit to Manama.

The program deals in cooperation in the field of coping with pandemics and medical emergencies, research and development in health, information sharing, digital health, medical innovation and genetic research.

“We have so much to learn from one another and the cooperation we agreed to today is for the benefit of all citizens from both nations.”

“This shows the significance and the sheer strength of international peace and cooperation,” Horowitz added.

The cooperation deal between Israel and Bahrain comes hours after Emirati Ambassador to Israel Mohamed Al Khaja announced a free-trade agreement between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Jewish State is expected to be completed by the end of the month.

Arno's Commentary

Cooperation between Bahrain and Israel is beneficial for both nations, and indeed a contributor toward “strength of international peace.”

This island country located in the Persian Gulf, has a population of over 1.5 million, of which almost half are immigrants. Religiously, 73.7% are Muslim, with 9.3% Christian. Life expectancy is 79.7 years, which is quite remarkable.

For Israel, this is significant because across the water from Bahrain lies Iran, Israel’s declared enemy. But it is equally beneficial to Bahrain because of Israel’s high-tech know-how, particularly in the medical innovation and genetic research fields. 

The CIA Factbook lists Bahrain’s arable land as only 2.1% of the country. Needless to say, Israel’s highly sophisticated agricultural technology—getting the most produce with the least water—is extremely beneficial.

Besides, with Israel’s friendship, Iran has an additional enemy—for whoever is friends with Israel is their enemy.
