Bahrain committed to enhancing health care system

The health care system in Bahrain has accomplished great achievements during the past decade and the government is fully committed to continue to enhance it, Lt. General Dr Shaikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, Chairman of the Supreme Council of Health, said as he opened the first Bahrain International Obstetrics & Gynaecology conference.

Shaikh Mohammed expressed pride that 99.7% of births were performed by highly qualified health care personnel and that the rate of cesarean deliveries in Bahrain, at 28 per cent, is low compared with other countries.

However, he noted that despite the many achievements in the field of obstetrics, many challenges remain, the most important of which is the markedly high rate of births before the expected date, rising from 64 per 1,000 births in 1985 to reach 105.4 per 1,000 births in 2017. The increase is consistent with the high rate of multiple pregnancy.

The conference features several workshops and addresses numerous issues, including modern and specialized developments.

It also includes the results of 10 recent clinical research papers presented by doctors trained in gynecology and obstetrics in the Arabian Gulf states.

The conference, organized by the Arab Gulf University in partnership with Tamkeen, was attended by Health Minister Faiqa Al Saleh.
