Al-Ghubash pointed out that he will shed light in his statement during the opening session on the reality of the health sector in Syria and the efforts being made to meet the health needs of citizens in the conditions of the economic siege and the effects of the terrorist war that directly targeted the health sector, in addition to presenting 16 working papers during the conference’s work within the framework of the topics raised on the agenda.
