Saudi female doctors have launched an ambulance service with all female staff to serve women and grant them more privacy. A team of female doctors at a governmental hospital in Khobar, east Saudi Arabia, came up with the idea, which they view as in line with their humanitarian and national duty. Paramedics and drivers of the ambulance vehicle will respond to distress calls from women in the Eastern Province. They will transfer them to hospitals upon injury or if they go into labour, as part of a community service project aimed at giving women more privacy.
