11 September 2012
   The Moroccan Deputy Minister of Health for Epidemic Control said, “The conference comes just in time to formulate the national and international plans meant to fight diseases, and come up with recommendations useful for the national and international communities.” He thanked the Kingdom for organizing the conference, and affirmed that Morocco will be participating in the conference, in the hope that the conference will bring about positive outcomes. “Such conferences strengthen regional and international cooperation in the fight against non-communicable diseases, seeking to attain a healthy environment in the Arab World and Middle East. These conferences are a good opportunity to discuss lifestyles, and review all the Arab and international experiences in this domain,” he said.
For his part, the Sudanese Deputy Minister of Health, Dr. Essamuddin Mohamed Abdullah, was quoted as saying, “The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is well known for its rich experience in the fight against non-communicable diseases, which, through the Global Conference on Healthy Lifestyles and Non-communicable Diseases, we can identify and transfer, beside many other experiences of other countries. We believe this will help the Sudan develop its own preventive programs. Our country is already suffering from the dual epidemic, as well as a high incidence of non-communicable diseases. So, we are looking forward to cooperation with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the fight against epidemics.”
The Libyan Deputy Minister of Health, Dr. Sa'd Aqoub, for his part, emphasized that the recommendations of the Global Conference on Healthy Lifestyles and Non-communicable Diseases in the Arab World and Middle East will undoubtedly contribute to the development of health systems. Thus, governments could be more dependent on precise, viable scientific experiences. And this will be reflected on the health level of the region's countries which have long suffered lagging health systems, owing to geographic, economic or political circumstances. The World Health Organization (WHO) has backed the Libyan people during the crisis. Hence, our attendance here embodies an effective participation of the new Libya, in an endeavor to make best use of the WHO's programs in all fields and at all levels. I hope that the conference will come up with results beneficial for Libya as well as all the region's countries.”
