Our commitment to sustainability

We know how sustainability is increasingly important

Running Arab Health gives us lots of opportunities to improve our impact environmentally, socially and economically in our region.  We want to make the event more responsible and play a role in helping the market improve its own sustainability through connecting people with the networks and knowledge they want to help solve the big challenges in the healthcare sector.
