$7.9 billion Qatar medical center joins world's leading paediatricians to tackle global child health inequality

A new strategic cooperation has been announced this week between the Excellence in Paediatrics Institute (EiPi), an international paediatric association based in Geneva, and the Sidra Medical and Research Center, a new state-of-the-art facility in Qatar funded by a $7.9 billion endowment from the Qatar Foundation.

Commenting on the announcement, made at the EiPi’s annual conference Chairman of EiP, Professor of Paediatrics Dimitri Christakis, said: “This co-operation will strengthen EiP’s ability to deliver advanced Paediatric education where it is needed most, advancing global healthcare for children, especially in emerging markets.”

World Health Organisation data shows that children are five-times more likely to reach their fifth birthday if they live in a country with sufficient numbers of qualified paediatricians, doctors, midwives and nurses.

EiP brings together top academics, scientists and clinicians from services and centers of excellence across the globe and EiP’s members provide global paediatric education to over 60,000 providers and campaign for healthcare improvements based on the latest scientific research.

The Institute’s 5th global conference will be held in Doha, Qatar, from the 4th – 7th December 2013. The Sidra Medical and Research Center will be playing host to over 3,000 healthcare professionals from 100 countries.

Currently under construction on the Qatar Foundation’s 2500-acre Education City campus in Doha, Sidra’s focus will be the health and wellbeing of women and children. Sidra is actively recruiting up to 3,000 clinical and research staff.

Dr Edward Ogata, Chief Medical Officer at Sidra says:
“EiP is an important forum for those at the frontline of delivering paediatric healthcare, bringing clinicians together with scientists and academics to identify innovations and insights that have the potential to transform care for children all around the world. We are looking forward to working with the Institute and sharing our vision for Sidra with visitors to Qatar.”

Sidra’s Communications Project Director Khalid Al Mohannadi said, “Today is an important day for Sidra and for Qatar, and for children everywhere in the world. We are delighted to partner with the Excellence in Paediatrics Institute, which shares our vision of better care for children through innovation, training, education and partnership. Through this cooperation, we can contribute to global advances in paediatric care. The countdown to December 4th 2013 begins now.”

The Anaphylxis Initiative

The Anaphylaxis Initiative, an Excellence in Paediatrics (EIP) Community campaign, has been designed to fill an information gap that currently exists amongst paediatricians, parents and all those who care for children. As the prevalence of severe anaphylactic reactions in children has increased, it is now clear that there must be a renewed and concerted effort, by all stakeholders – paediatric healthcare professionals, parents, child carers and legislators – to make sure that we are all fully prepared for when anaphylactic reactions occur. 

Help us understand why poor guideline compliance may continue take young lives

Take the survey now and join the anaphylaxis network.
