A SYMPOSIUM ON MEDICAL HEALTH CARE
The Deanship of Scientific Research, in cooperation with the College of Medical Radiology, held a symposium entitled "Challenges of Quality of Health Care in Sudan" presented by visiting professor Mohamed Al-Moatasem Abdel Baqi, Consultant Radiologist at the National Guard Hospital in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Professor Muhammad Al-Muatasim Abdel Baqi explained that the challenges facing the quality of health care in Sudan are centered on creating health facilities in the areas where there is no health service or it is inaccessible and securing access to health service sites. He added that, the most prominent challenges are the application of quality standards without any high cost, while protecting budget from waste, getting rid of administrative slack, and reengineering the old institutions before building new ones. Al-Muatasim concluded that the benefit from applying the quality is concentrated in the effectiveness and success of the treatment process, patient safety from medical errors and continuing medical education, attracting medical tourism from neighboring countries and providing hard currency.
