WISH’s Qatar Research Unit
WISH recently set up a dedicated Doha-based research unit. The research unit is charged with undertaking novel, standalone research in Qatar as well as supporting the work being done globally by the teams producing the many WISH forum reports that form the backbone of discussions that take place at WISH summits – such as by producing case studies that explore pressing issues in healthcare from a distinct Qatar perspective.
The research unit has quickly established strong working relationships with a number of healthcare stakeholders across Qatar and the MENA region, most notably Qatar’s Ministry of Public Health. The willingness of the Ministry of Public Health to take a lead in healthcare innovation paves the way for WISH’s researchers to produce many meaningful and impactful research outcomes in the years to come.
The Doha-based research unit is led by Dr. Walid Qoronfleh.
