MENA Regional Office to be hosted by American University of Beirut
August 1, 2017
It is with great pleasure that we announce that the American University of Beirut (AUB) will host the Association of Academic Health Centers International (AAHCI) MENA Regional Office. As leaders in the field of medical care, we continuously seek to advance our health system through major collaborations. The new collaboration will pave the way in bringing together academic health centers to promote regional activities, as well as programs that are of particular interest to the area.
In his capacity as a Regional Ambassador, Executive Vice President for Medicine and Global Strategy, Dr. Mohamed H. Sayegh, will be working closely with AUB members to actively support health centers worldwide. The regional office will mainly provide valuable insight for AAHCI on key issues and challenges faced in the region. Ms. Noha Hachach will act as the Regional Administrator for the office.
Accordingly, AUB will play a pivotal role as a growing platform to customize region-specific interests and tailor programs, facilitate important regional networking opportunities, educational programs, exchange of best practices, data collection and analysis, and community/regional relationships, and promote the understanding of the academic health center concept to government, industry, and the public.
Hosting the AAHCI regional office is a great opportunity to empower healthcare centers to transform, adapt, and thrive in a landscape which is continuously evolving. It reinforces AUB’s pioneering role in supporting medical advancement, while acting as a gateway to assure high quality patient care to the whole MENA region. This will ultimately lay the ground for further development in the future, keeping AUB at the forefront of progress to ensure a highly transformative healthcare environment.
