Welcome to Global Health Middle East
New feature: 'LENS' profile series
Exclusive access to academics, NGO workers, UN staff, bloggers, teachers, students, medical practitioners, community organisers and many others who are passionately working to improve the health and wellness of people in or from the Middle East region.
Global Health Middle East is an online platform that compiles, disseminates, and develops resources on global health in the Middle East. Our aims are 2-fold:
1. To establish a voice for the Middle East in the field of global health, drawing international attention to opportunities and challenges in the region.
2. To advocate for improved disease surveillance, research, and prevention locally, moving health services and care beyond a predominantly curative model.
Employing a 3-pronged approach, our platform will identify critical gaps in public health research, policy and practice, to provide health professionals, NGOs, activists and individuals with the tools to advocate for increased resources and policy change on a range of health challenges.
Moving forward, we will visually communicate regional disease burden, research projects, and public health initatives through infographics and interactive maps. These resources will help to identify critical gaps in public health research, policy and practice, providing a basis to advocate for resources and policy change.
