Harvard Medical School Center for Global Health Delivery–Dubai presents the 2016-2018 Progress Report

Salmaan Keshavjee, MD, PhD, ScM, director of Harvard Medical School Center for Global Health Delivery–Dubai, is pleased to present the Center's Progress Report detailing their efforts and accomplishments in bridging health delivery gaps.

Since the inception of the Center in 2014, the goal has been to develop a program in Dubai that would draw from the spirit on which Harvard University was founded—the pursuit of knowledge and the betterment of human kind and on which Dubai was built—as a crossroads for innovation and human development.

The Center's  express aim is to create a robust ecosystem of researchers and practitioners committed to addressing the gap in delivery of high quality health care to individuals in the communities where they live and work. the Center is excited to report that in the last four years, they have

  • held 40 workshops and 10 major courses bringing together over 2,685 colleagues;
  • awarded 81 scholarships and fellowships to scholars from the region and Harvard University; and
  • funded 25 research projects through the Center's region.

The Center is fortunate to have so many dedicated partners that have worked with them to make their goals a reality. The Center wishes to thank the Dubai Harvard Foundation for Medical Research, the Dubai Healthcare City Authority, the Dubai Health Authority, Mohammed Bin Rashid University, Harvard University, and innumerable other organizations and individuals in Dubai, Boston, and across the globe for their support.

As the Center looks forward to 2019 and beyond, they strive to extend the conversation beyond the health care delivery gap and to work to understand the accompaniment needed to make the dreams of health care as an inalienable human right a reality for all. You may view the Center's Progress Report on their website.
