Muscat: A new National Autism Centre will focus on "helping individuals living with autism and generate public awareness," according to the Ministry of Social Development (MoSD).

"It aims to identify, promote, treat and educate people on the acceptance of individuals living with autism," the ministry announced.

MoSD launched a tender for the establishment of the National Autism Centre, in cooperation with Oman LNG as part of their "Gift to Oman" initiative.

The Oman Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) Board of Directors has committed around $15 million in funding for projects — including the autism centre.
