CIRS Publishes Research on Healthcare in Region
In recent years, the countries of the Gulf have witnessed massive transformations in infrastructure, rapid economic growth, and significant population changes. But how has this impacted the healthcare provided in these nations has been discussed in a new publication by Georgetown University in Qatar’s premier research institute, the Center for International and Regional Studies (CIRS). Critical Issues in Healthcare Policy and Politics in the Gulf Cooperation Council States is the first book to examine the challenges facing the healthcare sector in the Gulf region. The book was edited by NYMC Faculty Ravinder Mamtani, M.D., adjunct professor of family and community medicine and adjunct associate professor of medicine, and Albert B. Lowenfels, M.D., (pictured) professor emeritus of surgery.
