HMC’s participation in the annual forum provides an opportunity to highlight the health developments witnessed by the State of Qatar, to enhance our organisations profile to key stakeholders and to showcase the Corporation’s services and vision for the future. It also provides us with an opportunity to share our focus on integrating research, education and clinical services to improve patient care and deliver innovative healthcare solutions by showcasing Qatar’s Academic Health System, the first within the MENA region.’
