In June 2016, we had our first session alongside Chatham House exploring the current priorities in non-communicable diseases; this closed meeting was a well attended with experts in this field including those from Syrian NGOs, international NGOs, the WHO, UN organisations and academic institutions.
The brief is available here.

Highlights of the meeting include recommendations about the promotion of steps towards universal health care in the region (for both Syrians and non-Syrians), streamlining service delivery to ensure quality of service  provision for NCDs, building capacity including the inclusion of Syrian health workers into service delivery in neighbouring countries and  strengthening data and health information systems relevant to NCDs.


Our next session will be in late 2016 and will explore what the current situation is for the Syrian Health Workforce and what workable solutions there are that can be addressed by relevant stakeholders and the  international community.
