Sheikh Al-Karbalai pointed out that there are very few hospitals specialized only for women, according to the available information, such hospitals are directed to four or five countries in the world only.

 he said, "The Islamic religion and all the true & wise divine religions in their journey of promoting the humanistic values have drawn special attention for women. By strengthening their dignity and preserving their rights 

since women are highly ensured to abide the Islamic Shariah provisions, it is required that the medical services provided to them be exclusive by female medical staff.

He continued "In order to strengthen and prosper the women's medical staff in our country, and to enhance the scientific and academic level in Iraq, the Imam Hussain Holy Shrine, paid special attention and directed its compass to establish both educational and health institutions that specialized exclusively for women.
