WISH Wraps Up Alzheimers Community Event

The World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) recently hosted an interactive public event at Education City, in association with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) and the Ministry of Public Health, to address the challenges faced by people in Qatar who suffer from various types of dementia, notably Alzheimer’s disease, and their caregivers.
Presentations were made by Dr. Hanadi Al Hamad, Chair of Geriatrics and Long-term Care Department at HMC; experts from Ehsan, Center for Empowerment and Elderly Care; researchers from Qatar University; and Rumailah Hospital, part of HMC. Additionally, a moving personal testimony from a participant whose spouse suffers from Alzheimer’s disease was given. Many of those who spoke referred to the need for further focus on research and outreach programs.
The event ended on an encouraging note, with Dr. Walid Qoronfleh, Director of Policy and Research at WISH, highlighting the positive collaborative work being undertaken by various stakeholders in Qatar and the efforts being made to engage with the community.
WISH is an initiative of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development. WISH’s latest report, titled ‘Enhancing the Response to the Burden and Impact of Dementia: Through Policy and Social Innovation in the Eastern Mediterranean Region’, can be accessed via its website: www.wish-qatar.org/wish-2016/forum-reports
