Damascus, (SANA)- Syria will be taking part in the activities of the 60th session of the Regional Committee for the Eastern Mediterranean at the World Health Organization (WHO) due to be held on October 27 in Muscat, the Omani capital.

Health ministers of 22 countries and heads and representatives of a number of international organizations and funds will mainly discuss over 4 days the strategy of the final phase of Global Polio Eradication, the Tobacco Free Initiative and Traffic Safety Initiative, in addition to the progress achieved on the regional level in the field of achieving the Millennium Development Goals.

Minister of Health Saad al-Nayef, who will chair the Syrian delegation to Muscat, highlighted in a statement to SANA the importance of Committee’s current session for Syria in terms of providing the opportunity to brief the participants on the reality of the health situation in the country and the efforts exerted by the government to preserve public health, particularly children, mothers and elderly health.

He added that the Syrian delegation will use the session to make a review of the huge pressures facing the health sector in Syria in light of the unfair economic embargo, the sanctions on the banking sector, the unprecedented misinformation campaigns and the continued targeting of the health institutions by the armed terrorist groups.

The Minister warned against the danger of return of epidemics and some diseases that is facing the region’s countries, including Syria, due to the passage of human groups illegally, calling for unified efforts to address this issue.
