AMMAN — Health Minister Mahmoud Sheyyab headed Jordan’s delegation to the 70th World Health Assembly and the 141st session of the World Health Organisation executive board meeting, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The Health Assembly is held annually in Geneva, Switzerland. On the sidelines of the events, Sheyyab is scheduled to hold multi and bilateral meetings with regional and international health officials, as well as health ministers to enhance cooperation in the field.

The health minister will focus on the additional burdens shouldered by the Kingdom’s health sector due to the large Syrian refugee influx. The meetings will cover topics like health emergencies, poliomyelitis, anti-bacterial resistance and confronting delinquent influenza.

I WISH TO REMIND THE MINISTER THAT THE BURDENS OF LARGE NUMBER OF SYRIAN REFUGEES IN JORDAN IS A JOKE COMPARED WITH THE PREVENTABLE CAUSES OF DEATH, DISABILITY AND CAUSES OF THESE DISEASES CALLED TOBACCO. NO ONE CAN DISPUTE THE FACT THAT THE INFLUX OF REFUGEES HAS NOT PUT A SQUEZE ON THE JORDAN'S ECONOMY BUT THE WORST OF THE WORST IS THAT JORDANIANS INVEST AND CONSUME PRODUCTS THAT WHEN USED AS DIRECTED MEANS DEATH, DISABILITY AND INFLATED COST OF HEALTH CARE.
