The international congress, hosted by Sidra Medicine, and being held for the first time in the Middle East, will conclude on November 4.
“It gives me great pleasure to welcome over 800 paediatric general surgeons, paediatric urologists, community surgeons, surgical trainees, and nurses from around the globe to WOFAPS 2019.”
“ Qatar is the first Middle East country to host such a major paediatric surgery congress. As a Qatari surgeon, I am proud to see the readiness and capability of a leading healthcare organisation like Sidra Medicine to host such a global event. We are now at the forefront of women’s and children’s healthcare services and supporting the teaching and training to attending surgeons from around the globe,” Dr Ali explained.
“The organisation of this conference has truly been a team effort, with the main goal to provide all delegates with the best, and enriching world congress experience. Under the theme ‘Moving Collaboration, Education and Training Beyond Borders’, Qatar is welcoming the brightest and most innovative thought leaders in the surgical and medical field,” Prof David Sigalet, chief of patient services at Sidra Medicine and president of WOFAPS said,
“Africa and Asia are the geographies that witness the biggest disparities in healthcare, and it’s a global responsibility to address those disparities in terms of offering access to well-being to people everywhere. Organising the congress here in Qatar and having 100 doctors who are giving care to children in these parts of the world sponsored to come and attend is a sign of the democratisation of surgery, and giving equal chances in surgical access to everyone.”
