WHO Approved EMR and Arab Countries Diploma course in Family Medicine


Somalilandsun: Primary health care is essential for a strong health care system and a healthy population, and family practice is essential for effective primary health care.
The World Health Organization therefore promotes family practice as part of efforts to achieve universal health coverage.
However, there are not enough family physicians in the Eastern Mediterranean Region and Arab countries.
To this effect a two year Regional Professional Diploma course in Family Medicine has been put in place.
This training aims to address this gap by giving general physicians practicing in the Region a convenient route to become family practitioners.
The Diploma is delivered by the Arab Board of Health Specializations (ABHS) and the WHO Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean in collaboration with WONCA’s regional office, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA),the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
