WONCA East Mediterranean Region Formation

The announcement of the WONCA Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR) as full WONCA Region during the Cancun Conference was happily awaited. It was the culmination of several years of preparation on the part of its interim executive. The idea to establish a WONCA group solely for the Middle East was introduced by Michael Boland, Bruce Sparks and many others. WONCA EMR came into existence in July 2007, during the WONCA Executive Meeting in Singapore and Professor Nabil Al Kurashi was selected to head the committee to develop the region.
