I do have a mission in Iran, for those that do not know or only like to assume to know. In fact, I have a few goals while I’m here: I keep busy on all of them. One goal of mine is to see Iran’s ‘Economy of Resistance’ grow stronger, developing and expanding as much as possible, especially, while strapped with unpleasant and inhumane sanctions.
Personally, I look for ways to help and make myself available to the people and for the people of Iran wherever they need me most. You may not see me set up for a pose with a headscarf blowing in the wind–it’s not my style. I, on the other hand, like to focus on what Iranians say is important to them, not on what Westerners think is important for Iran: aggressive campaigns to reinvent Iran in a western image is again not my thing.
So, what do Iranians care about? Well, they care about much, it is hard to list. But, many Iranians will tell you, it’s the economy that needs definite support. The economy needs support, from the inside and outside, and a boost whenever possible. You might have noticed, through my post on social media, I do showcase some of the beautiful products and crafts Iran has to offer; rarely do I focus on the greater things that people know so little of when it comes to Iran–like the great medical care Iran has to offer. Did you know that Iran’s medical and healthcare system, despite the claims of anti-Iranian critics, has vastly improved since the Revolution? (We can get into a whole other article with that point.) Below are some advancements Iran has made in the medical field.
–According to the World Health Organization, since 2000, Iran ranks #58 in overall healthcare.
— In 2016, Bloomberg News ranked Iran #30 among the most efficient healthcare systems, putting Iran ahead of the United States and Brazil. According to their report life expectancy in Iran is 75.5 years and “per capita spending on healthcare is $346.”
–“Iran’s primary healthcare system has been rated as “excellent” by UNICEF.”
“The health status of Iranians has improved over the last two decades. Iran has been able to extend public health preventive services through the establishment of an extensive Primary Health Care Network. As a result, child and maternal mortality rates have fallen significantly, and life expectancy at birth has risen remarkably. Infant (IMR) and under-five (U5MR) mortality have decreased to 28.6 and 35.6 per 1,000 live births respectively in 2000, compared to an IMR of 122 per 1,000 and a U5MR of 191 per 1,000 in 1970.”
To give you a visual of how impressive Iran is, in terms of medical development and advancements, I am linking in a short and long video of my most recent work in Iran which showcases their medical capabilities, facilities, and advancements. Mind you, all of this has been accomplished while the Iranian nation is under tremendous pressure from sanctions: lifting sanctions could improve Iran’s medical capabilities greatly. After viewing my video you can only imagine what an Iran would be like without the pressure of sanctions, they have come a long way regardless.

“Recommending this informative video for anyone interested in the following: medical development and advancements; low-cost medical procedures; medical tourism; education in various medical fields or a general interest in Iran’s medical capabilities. The video, made in collaboration with Golestan University of Medical Sciences, is for the purpose of introducing medical cost, care, education and much more that Iran has to offer. It’s all about building this resilient economy up which is a long time passion of mine; I am putting that passion to great use here as the infomercial announcer. I hope you enjoy what you see and learn from this short clip. The original is 20 minutes long.”
