DUBAI, May 3, 2015

The World Organisation of Family Medicine (Wonca) East Mediterranean Region and Sanofi, a global healthcare leader,  have signed a two-year agreement to deliver a series of educational training sessions to family physicians in the UAE.

The signing ceremony was held during the opening of the second Wonca East Mediterranean Region Family Medicine Congress which saw the participation of general practitioners from across the East Mediterranean Region.

“Primary care physicians or family doctors play a crucial role; they are essentially the entry point for almost all patients with medical needs,” said Dr  Mohammed Tarawneh, Wonca East Mediterranean region president. “Enhancement of their skills is crucial in maintaining high standards of care for patients. By providing a platform for their continued education through meaningful partnerships with global healthcare leaders such as Sanofi, we are ensuring that patients ultimately are benefitted.”

With special emphasis on chronic diseases including cardiovascular and diabetes, the program will provide doctors with up-to-date courses on various aspect of disease management, giving them access to global as well as local scientific know-how.  

"Sanofi recognises the important responsibility it has to proactively contribute to enriching the healthcare practice. Through this partnership, we are committed to support Wonca in delivering series of training of international calibre and quality. At Sanofi, patients are at the centre of everything we do and we want to empower primary care practitioners so that they may ultimately render services of the highest standards to patients," said Mohammed Ismail, medical and regulatory affairs director for Sanofi Gulf. - TradeArabia News Service
