The Iranian government has announced a new directive mandating an Islamic dress code for patients and medical workers.

The Head of the Hijab and Chastity Secretariat in the Ministry of Health, Majid Mohammadian, unveiled the directive on Thursday, requiring it be implemented in both public and private health institutions nationwide.

Mohammadian said, “Several new standard models of clothing have been designed, produced, including surgical gowns, underwears, trousers for colonoscopy, transvaginal ultrasound, breast ultrasound, mammography, special breastfeeding dresses, veils and other garments.”

He said that the new rules were intended to ensure patients’ attires were in compliance with Islamic principles during medical procedures and diagnostic examinations.

The announcement came amid escalating enforcement of hijab regulations under Project Nour, the clerical ruler’s campaign to ensure adherence to hijab laws, which had led to increased physical confrontations and crackdowns on Iranian women.

As Iran waits for the official approval of the hijab bill, titled: “Protection of Family Through Promotion of Hijab and Chastity Culture”, the government has already begun to enforce the new regime.

The new regulations threaten women with arrest and impose harsh punishments such as travel bans for non-compliance with hijab mandates.
