The project focuses on providing first class medical care in remote areas and in developing regions through innovative methods. The Avicenna Project brings creative minds and well respected organistaions together in order to find solutions to provide healthcare access to all.
Our events play host to high profile speakers who will deliver exciting and inspirational talks on medical care and research, healthcare design, innovation and investment.
Currently, one of the objectives of the Avicenna Project is to develop a world class paediatric cancer hospital and research healthcare centre in the Middle East. Our aim is to provide the most efficient solution that once implemented will lead to the development of a centre that will provide cost-effective healthcare to all children. Our hope is that this solution can then help reduce the number of victims dealing with this disease and spare their families from emotional and economic consequences.
From our inital case study, we know that in Iran alone hundreds of children deal with cancer every year. Although there are organisations in Iran dealing with this situation they alone cannot cope with the number of patients and the demographics of the disease.
With this in mind, children from neighbouring countries also come to Iran to seek treatment. For example, Mahak, one of the most well-known institutions supporting children with cancer in the region based in Iran, is receiving patients from Iraq and Afghanistan. However, they alone cannot respond to all this demand effectively.
Besides providing just passive sympathy we are initiating this project to develop cost effective plans that will be able to provide a solution. Our hope is that this solution can then help reduce the number of victims dealing with this disease and spare their families from emotional and economic consequences.
The following table presents the project objectives for our first case study.
