“Let us redefine our approach and start recalibrating our priority goals to ensure that everyone everywhere is able to enjoy the highest attainable standard of health,” she highlighted.

“Think further, the opportunities are already in our table to bring high quality and specialized care to everyone,” she added

Meanwhile, the participants presented their operational plans on its second day which comprises various committees such as the Governing Board, Capacity Building Committee, Research Ethics Committee, Research Management Committee, Research Utilization Committee and Structure Organization Monitoring and Evaluation Committee.
