Panel dis­cusses health in­di­ca­tors in Dho­far


Health in­di­ca­tors of Dho­far Gover­norate and chal­lenges be­ing faced by the Direc­torate of Health Ser­vices in the im­ple­men­ta­tion of ad­min­is­tra­tive and tech­ni­cal works were dis­cussed at the first meet­ing of the Fol­low-up and Co­or­di­na­tion Com­mit­tee of Health Ser­vices.

The meet­ing, held in line with the min­is­te­rial de­cree on the for­ma­tion of the co­or­di­na­tion and fol­low-up com­mit­tees in the gov­er­norates by the Min­is­te­rial Res­o­lu­tion 131/2017, was chaired by Dr Sul­tan bin Yarub al Bu­saidi, Ad­viser in the Min­istry of Health. The com­mit­tee mem­bers took part in the dis­cus­sion on Tues­day in the meet­ing hall of the Gen­eral Direc­torate of Health Ser­vices in Dho­far Gover­norate.

These com­mit­tees, ac­cord­ing to a mem­ber, aim to fol­low up progress of work in the gen­eral di­rec­torates of health ser­vices in the gov­er­norates and sort out the is­sues in con­sul­ta­tion with the com­pe­tent au­thor­i­ties.

The idea is to keep an eye on im­ple­men­ta­tion of plans and de­vel­op­ment of works at each level in ad­di­tion to fol­low-up plans for epi­demi­o­log­i­cal pre­pared­ness. Epi­demi­o­log­i­cal branch of medicine deals with the in­ci­dence, dis­tri­bu­tion and con­trol of dis­eases.

The com­mit­tee is also en­trusted with the task of as­sess­ing the med­i­cal re­sponse and pub­lic health in cases of cri­sis and dis­as­ter and strength­en­ing co­op­er­a­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the gov­ern­ment, civil and com­mu­nity agen­cies.

Mean­while, a work­shop on ‘ Smart Phar­macy’ was held in the meet­ing hall on Mon­day. The pre­sen­ters put stress on adopt­ing the best prac­tices while set­ting up phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal care and med­i­cal ware­houses.

The con­cept is aimed at en­abling the staff phar­ma­cists and as­so­ci­ated health pro­fes­sion­als with special skills so that they can of­fer qual­ity phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal care to the pa­tients.
