“Health System in Iraq: An Overview with Dr Kamal Field and Jafar Albadran” – Thursday 24th January 2013

Ehlen we sehlen beekum!

In the 1980′s Iraq’s healthcare system was unparalleled in the middle-east; the country had by far the best medical facilities, so far that people used to travel to Iraq to receive optimal treatment. Following 2 decades of international sanctions continuous wars, the healthcare system dropped below to an all time low. The current main cause of death, by WHO research, shows that acute respiratory infections and diarrhoea are the main causes for infant mortality in Iraq, which is a staggering 44 deaths per 1000 live births in 2012, in comparison to the UK, who have a rate of 5 per 1000. Although the rise in the number of doctors, there has been no increase in the number of nurses and midwives, crucial vocations in any medical system; with only 1.38 nurses per 1000 people, the quality of care for the Iraqi patient is compromised.

This year Imperial College Iraqi Society will be bringing in Dr Kamal Field, Director of Research at the Iraqi Institute for Economical Reform in Baghdad, and Dr Jafar Albadran, Fellow of the British Computer Society, Data Storage Consultant at Deutsche Bank and researcher in the field of Iraqi Healthcare, to discuss the healthcare situation in Iraq. The talk will involve the current position of the medical care system, how it was in the past, highlighting the improvements, and discussing key ideas for projects currently starting up in Iraq. The talk will be in the format of a discussion, presentation and question and answer session.

Dr Field will also be discussing opportunities for student involvement in current on-going research with himself and Dr Albadranas they are endorsing student influence and encouraging interest in future projects. Current projects on going are on the National Health Insurance in Iraq, more detail of which will be offered in the evening with a chance to consider it further with Dr Field on the night. They are also welcoming any ideas, or research projects you wish to conduct using their facilities.

Time: Thursday 24th January 2013 at 6.30pm

Location: Huxley LT311 in Imperial College London

We hope to see you next week!

IraqiSOC Debate TOMORROW – Tuesday 6th November 2012

Marhaba!

Imperial College Iraqi Society is excited to invite you to our annual Oxford-Union style debate about Iraq tomorrow Tuesday 6th November.

The motion for this year’s debate is:


“This house believes that all Arab countries should become one nation”


Arab nationalists believe that the Arab nation had existed as a historical entity prior to the rise of nationalism in the 19th–20th century. Join us as our debaters contest whether not such a notion is still a possibility amidst the Middle Easts’ current political climate. We look forward to seeing you all there, for what is guaranteed to be an interesting evening!

Feel free to contact us for any other enquiries. Refreshments will be provided. All are welcome!

Time: 18:30 – 20:30
Location: LT 1.47, Royal School of Mines, Imperial College London, Prince Consort Road, SW7 2AZ
