GCC health body condones unified strategy on health communication

KUWAIT, May 20 (KUNA) — GCC Health Communication Council wrapped up a two-day meeting by recommending a new unified strategy to best disseminate health-related information through broadcast, print, and electronic media.
Council member and head of the media office at the Ministry of Health Dr. Ghalia Al-Mutairi told KUNA on Friday that the meeting (which took place on May 18-19) came out in favor of boosting cooperation with the WHO, particularly in training personnel on promoting health-related information or campaigns in the GCC region.
The meeting also agreed to have members of the Council exchange expertise and research papers on health awareness issues, said Dr. Al-Mutairi, with the added emphasis on the use of technology to deliver this awareness to the public. In that regard, she noted that the ministry of Health in Kuwait has already launched a computer App in Arabic for those interested to seek information on childhood diabetes.
Moreover, she said the two-day meeting chose the subject of Healthy Lifestyles for the Council’s health campaign for the next three years, to be celebrated in the first week of March in those years.
The Council also decided to shift the TV and Radio health program known as Your Good Health from its current broadcasting venue to that on YouTube to keep up with the public’s interest in using new channels of technology, said Dr. Al-Mutairi, indicating that the next Council meeting will be in the UAE in 2018.
