an interview with dr. mariam ali abdulmalik, managing director of primary health care corporation

What have been the major milestones and highlights of PHCC in the recent years? Historically Qatar’s health infrastructure had mostly invested in hospital services, presenting a curative and expensive health system which did not serve our population in the best way. Primary health care should be the first point of contact for people and families, in their communities. It is the main way of ensuring universal health coverage in a health system, and continuity of care for a patient, focusing on prevention and keeping people well. We have opened 10 new Health Centers, including 5 Health and Wellness Centers. More people can access the healthcare they need closer to their homes. Our health indicators are improving, with more people living longer, and lower burdens of both communicable and non-communicable disease. We would like to see…

qatar: the transition to a knowledge based economy

Qatar’s economy has successfully absorbed the shocks from the 2014-16 drop in oil prices and the continuing diplomatic rift, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The country has managed to retain export ties to develop newer trade relations, sustaining its one-third share of global liquefied natural gas (LNG) trade. “Overall, the blockade has helped to build resilience and provided a platform for growth for Qatar going forward,” says Abdulla al-Misnad, Deputy Chief Executive at Qatar Free Zone Authority (QFZA). Saleh bin Hamad Al-Sharqi, Director General of Qatar Chamber of Commerce and Industry, adds, “After the initial setbacks due to the diplomatic rift with GCC neighbors in June 2017, Qatar has weathered the consequences of the dispute with sound economic confidence, aided by its financial reserves and infrastructural strength. The country has…

1963 Summer in Birmingham was “a sweaty season of tension,” Newsweek reported. An Alabaman city in the throes of desegregation, the powder-keg burst on Birmingham’s “Bloody Sunday” when dynamite was planted and an explosion rocked the “well-attended” 16th Street Baptist Church. It resulted in the deaths of four black girls attending Sunday school, and the city erupted. “Blood-splattered kindergarten leaflets” strewn across the ground read: “Dear God, we are sorry for the times when we were unkind.” Amid lingering racial tension, history reminds us of the kindness we still need. 1975 The tale of newspaper heiress Patty Hearst was the “most bizarre kidnap case in United States history,” wrote Newsweek. The unabashed “captive-turned-commando revolutionary” became the picture of radicalism when she was finally arrested after a 19-month romp as a partner to her…

taking on the grim reaper

IT REQUIRES NERVES OF STEEL TO TAKE ON MITCH McConnell, arguably the most powerful man in Washington. But Amy McGrath has already been to war and back, three times. The 44-year-old retired Lieutenant Colonel, an Independent-turned-Democrat, is challenging the self-declared Grim Reaper for the Senate seat he’s clung onto since 1985. McGrath has had tougher, though. During her 20-year career with the Marines, she became the first woman to fly in a F/A-18 fighter jet in combat and took on 89 missions in the Middle East, fighting Al-Qaeda and Taliban insurgents. When she retired into civilian life in 2017, she was dismayed by what she saw as a lack of action in Congress so she ran for office in a district that voted for Trump by 15.3 points. She lost by…
