Dear all esteemed guests, dignitaries and participants,
Welcome to “Rethinking Women’s Healthcare Today: Current Issues, Professional Training, and Improving
Healthcare Services”, a conference that will bring together health care professionals, policy makers and statesmen
to discuss the future of women’s healthcare in the Republic of Iraq. The overarching aim of this three-day
convening is to foster the spirit of cohesion and excellence in the field of gynecology, obstetrics and reproductive
health.Through this, efforts to improve the livelihoods and vitality of women holistically can be greatly enriched.
Over the coming days, we will consider the various aspects of gynecology, obstetrics and reproductive health as
they pertain to the advancement of women’s vitality and wellbeing in the contemporary moment whilst
simultaneously celebrating the technological victories for reproductive health today.Through a focus on the
changing technology in the field of obstetrics and the practice of gynecology in particular contexts, we hope to
provide a conducive space to engage in these issues as they affect women’s healthcare professionals at every
In doing so, this convening will develop not only a unique discourse around women’s health but also a dynamic
training environment the character of which we hope will continue well after our last day together and benefit
communities both domestically and internationally.
