The conference will be held virtually and focus on clinical updates in the continuum of care for women, particularly in the fields of obstetrics, gynaecology and reproductive health.
WCH 2021 will bring together national and international healthcare professionals to discuss different aspects of women’s health including well woman care across health services; updates on benign gynaecology conditions; infertility and reproductive health updates and the care of women during pregnancy, labour and the postpartum period.
Prof Johnny Awwad, chair of Women’s Services at Sidra Medicine and keynote speaker at WCH 2021, said: “It is our great pleasure to host the Women’s Health Conference 2021, which will provide evidence based healthcare education to professionals in our network. We will also be presenting the latest research findings regarding the care of pregnant women and those with gynaecology and fertility problems. We hope that WCH 2021 will contribute to advancing care as well as providing seamless preventative and curative services for women in Qatar and beyond.”
In addition to local speakers from Sidra Medicine and Hamad Medical Corporation, the conference will feature international speakers such as Dr Gihad Challouhi from Neckaire Hospitals, Paris, and Dr Karl Jallad from the Lebanese American University in Beirut.

We are looking forward to discussing the latest advances and evidence based treatment options that will positively impact the care of women across primary, secondary and tertiary care services. Other topics that will be featured include the clinical debate on the role of tele-health in antenatal care and the role of Artificial Intelligence in women’s health.”
