"The support of the Supreme Council of Health to QMED reflects the council's strong commitment to the health sector, which is regarded as the pivot of social development," Hamad Jassim Al-Hamar, director of the public relations department at the Qatar Supreme Council of Health, said. "The move forms part of the council's keenness to open channels of communication between different players in the health sector, as part of its goal to upgrade the health sector as well as create a networking platform."
Khalifa Al Mohannadi, Sogha Exhibitions and Conferences general manager, said the efforts of the Supreme Council of Health to address health and social issues in the country would go a long way toward guaranteeing the success of the QMED in the coming years.
