Dubai is to host the Middle East’s largest series of health care conferences in January, with over 40 leading experts from the USA, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Australasia addressing key medical issues and the latest advances in patient care.
The International Arab Health Congress, to be held alongside Arab Health 2003 – the region’s premier hospital, medical equipment and services exhibition - will feature five medical conferences: the e-Health symposium; Health Management; Robotics – surgery of the future, that will include live demonstrations of robot assisted surgery and Diseases of Emerging Economies, comprising two conferences – Obesity and Diabetes and Infectious Diseases.
The Congress is being organized by IIR Exhibitions, in association with Saudi Arabia’s King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center System (KFSH&RCS); the World Health Organisation and the WorldCare Consortium that brings together several leading US hospitals, including John Hopkins Medicine, Duke University, the Cleveland Clinic and Massachusetts General.
Critical issues to be discussed include: the impact of the Internet and computer networks on healthcare; the use of robotics in surgery; the growing regional threat of AIDS, TB, obesity and diabetes; infection control techniques; advances in laparoscopic and endoscopic surgery; the increasing cost of providing quality healthcare; privatization of regional healthcare providers and public-private partnerships in healthcare deliveries and the challenges of mass health insurance. — (menareport.com)
