Dr. Seyed Taghi Nourbakhsh, while noting the ISSO’s 60-year history of activity, said: “Today, 41 million people of total Iranian population are covered by various health and insurance services and benefits of the Iranian Social Security Organization (ISSO).

"Health services are delivered through Direct and Indirect Health Departments. Direct health services are delivered to the insured completely free of charge through 350 hospitals and health care providing centers owned by the ISSO, and the 45000 contracted health providers deliver medical services to the insured in the form of indirect health services”, he explained.

Dr. Nourbakhsh continued: Iranian Social security system is based on defined benefit plan, while Swedish social insurance system is based on defined contribution plan due to its high level of public welfare. In this regard, the ISSO is committed to invest in different economic fields in order to be able to provide services to the insured population.

The Managing Director of the ISSO emphasized the preparedness of this organization to collaborate and share knowledge with Swedish entities on health services management, implementing referral system, issuing health smart card, and organizing specific vocational training courses.

Dr. Nourbakhsh also remarked that, 40000 personnel are employed in the health section of the ISSO of which 8000 are physicians who can attend training courses in Sweden in order to develop their professional capacities and knowledge.

Mr. Stephan Noreen, Ambassador and Senior Consultant to Minister of Investment and Innovation of Sweden said: the Iranian Social Security Organization plays a very vital role in providing medical and insurance services to the insured. In fact, my major  mission is getting acquainted with capacities and capabilities of the ISSO and also studying cooperation fields between Iran and Sweden, especially in health domain.

"Given the visit of Minister of Health and Social Affairs of Sweden in near future, this meeting is organized to recognize the ISSO capacities of cooperation with the Swedish Ministry of Health and Social Affairs ", he explained.

“The potential fields of cooperation with the ISSO can be implementing referral system, organizing complementary short and long term training courses for staff of health section", he continued.
