Doha: In an effort to stay connected with its partners, the Supreme Council of Health’s National Cancer Programme (NCP) has launched the first edition of its internal newsletter.
The newsletter will be circulated within SCH and its partners Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) and Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC).
The newsletter is an internal publication circulated every two months and covers announcements and achievements related to the programme, including updates on awareness campaigns such as the Cancer Myth Refutation Campaign, announcements of new medical programmes, and results from screening campaigns and health initiatives.
The primary goal of the newsletter is to keep all those involved with NCP updated and recognise the work delivered by partners.
NCP Director, Fiona Bonas, said, “We are delighted to introduce this internal initiative, stressing the importance of the commitment between the SCH, HMC and PHCC.
“It is of extreme importance for all partners to keep informed with NCP’s latest news, which will further strengthen the collaborative work among all partners and empower everyone working on this programme to achieve recommendations set forth by the National Cancer Strategy.”
The announcement of NCP’s newsletter comes a month after SCH celebrated National Cancer Strategy’s third anniversary.
The NCP will continue to deliver National Cancer Strategy which strives to ensure the community in Qatar is provided with world-class services.
Dr Shaikha Sami Abu Shaikha, Manager of Special Care Programme Division and Head of Cancer Screening, PHCC, said, “We are thrilled to see the launch of this newsletter as it is a forum for us to share news and best practice related to cancer screening and treatment and motivate our workforce to deliver the best possible outcomes for patients.”
NCP is backed by political commitment and enjoys support of all stakeholders and partners, including Qatar Cancer Society as a key stakeholder and advocacy groups that operate under its umbrella.
