  • Description

    A three-day conference of Arab Health Ministers opened at the Lebanese summer resort of Bahamdoun, outside Beirut, on Tuesday (4 September). Delegates from 16 Arab States and Palestine are attending.

    The main objective is to establish an Arab Health organisation to assist with the coordination of health services. Also for discussion will be the medical and teaching aid provided to Palestine by the Arab countries.

    In the past 10 years there has been a considerable improvement in health conditions in the Arab world, although some countries are still worried by diseases, such as malaria. Among the main concern of the Arab nations is the high incidence of disease, especially among peasants, who struggle to survive in the vast, arid areas.
