Reinforcing the youth's role in combating cancer, the conference launched first-of-its-kind initiative featuring abstract presentations

Sharjah, November 23, 2022,

Reaffirming its belief in youth contribution to the healthcare sector, the 5th Combined Gulf Cancer Conference (CGCC) offered a  unique platform for university students and upcoming medical experts to share their scientific papers and theses on cancer research.

Held as part of the plenary sessions and activities on the sidelines of the conference, university students from various medical and scientific institutions in the region shared their abstract research presentations throughout the three-day event from November 21 to 23.

During the daily presentations themed ‘Youth in Action', young researchers showcased their cancer control research projects and findings aimed at improving healthcare systems and cancer treatments in the GCC countries. A host of healthcare and scientific experts, particularly in oncology and cancer care, lauded the progress of initiatives taken up by the younger generation in  curbing the disease.

The conference received 12 scientific theses from university students and 13 scientific abstracts from health experts in the UAE and the GCC. The best three presentations will be lauded at the closing ceremony of the CGCC, based on the evaluations by physicians and academic health leaders attending the conference as well as global cancer prevention entities.

Organised by the Friends of Cancer Patients, (FOCP), the CGCC event is hosting key healthcare leaders from the GCC countries to discuss cancer prevention and control efforts. Held in Sharjah for the first time at Al Jawaher Reception and Convention Centre, the conference launched the first-of-its-kind youth participation initiative under the directives of Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, wife of His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah, Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs (SCFA), Founder and Royal Patron of FOCP, who believes in the importance of engaging youth and activating their role in non-communicable disease forums as a key pillar to achieve sustainability in healthcare and quality of life for the peoples of the Gulf countries.
