Egypt stresses key role of Arab Board of Health Specializations

Health Minister Hala Zayed – the head of the executive office of the Arab Health Ministers Council – stressed the pivotal role of the Arab Board of Health Specializations in confronting the extraordinary health challenges besetting several Arab countries.

Addressing the opening session of the higher authority of the Arab Board of Health Specializations on Monday, she said that this pan-Arab body was established to serve development goals and offer technical assistance to Arab states.

She added that the board has experienced hard times, which sapped its power, especially with regard to countries’ failure to adhere to their financial commitments.

She lauded a decision by the Arab health ministers to re-form the board to give it a new lease of life.

Meanwhile, UAE Health Minister Abdul Rahman al Owais commended the key role played by Egypt in reviving the council, underlining the importance of rallying Arab efforts to confront the major health challenges facing the Arab world.
