Speaking on the sidelines of 2024 Iran Health exhibition in Tehran, Mohammad Reza Kompany said that currently 90% of the equipment needed by hospitals is supplied by domestic companies.

"Three data-x-items of hospital equipment are imported into the country due to the complexity of the technology [required to produce them]," he added.


Kompany pointed to the government's support for knowledge-based companies in the country, saying,“The Vice Presidency for Science and Technology and Knowledge-Based Economy, the ministries of health and industry provide various spiritual and financial support to these companies;for example, the ministries of industry and health buy the products produced in knowledge-based companies in line with their instructions, which is a welcome thing, but it still needs to be increased.”
