Ministry of Public Health Message of Endorsement

Increasing life expectancy has led to higher expectations amongst people not only to live longer, but also to live longer with lower levels of morbidity, fewer years of disability, and with a high quality of life. Medical advances are increasingly making longer healthy life spans possible.

Message from British Geriatrics Society

The British Geriatrics Society tries to promote developments in Geriatric Medicine across the globe and is therefore very happy to collaborate in this first Qatar International Geriatric and Gerontology Conference in Doha. The fact that people are living longer is something to be celebrated.

Message from the Conference Vice-Chairperson

On behalf of the Scientific Committee, I am delighted to announce a rich and diverse program for a truly multi-disciplinary approach to caring for the elderly. We have a wide-range of well-established speakers, who are experts in their fields, to deliver the conference lectures and workshops.  

Reasons to attend

This is the first conference in the Arab world that focuses on geriatric care and the field of gerontology and will be an important platform to facilitate informed dialogue on how to deliver better care to an ageing population.
