Health Minister Opens OMA Conference & Oman Health Exhibition 201825/9/2018
The works of Oman Medical Association (OMA) Conference and Oman Health Exhibition 2018 commenced yesterday Monday at the Oman Convention & Exhibition Center.
The three-day Conference, which is organized by the OMA is held under the patronage of H.E. Dr. Ahmed bin Mohammed al-Saidi, Minister of Health with the presence of number of senior officials of health services in the public and private sectors along with ambassadors of some brotherly and friendly countries.
The opening ceremony included a welcome speech delivered by Dr. Waleed Al Zadjali, President of OMA where he highlighted that the medical and health professions face unlimited challenges and need the support of all authorities. What concerns the health services maintainers is how to create a healthy and appropriate environment with the use of modern technologies and devices with a balanced budget that is compatible with the state budget. Truly, the countries' incomes vary; however, if incomes and resources are well managed, qualified, and trained, they could be pioneer in the health services. Recently, health insurance has become an irreversible reality and a solution that supports health services budgets. Dr. Al Zadjali added:” Medical errors and legal consequences are the other thing that concern and hinder all health services worldwide. Therefore, health institutions and their sponsors must establish a mechanism to reduce these medical errors and create a safe working environment for the medical staff in these health institutions. Consequently, all health workers should follow the approved medical standards and protocols”.
On the importance of the event, Prof Taha Al Lawati, Head of the conference scientific committee stressed that the exhibition allows companies to display their best of sophisticated medical equipment in order to enable the medical personnel access what is new in the field of their areas of specialization. While the conference allows for workers in the areas of health specialties to exchange experiences with foreign experts, who came from many International and regional countries.
