Promotion of cooperative leadership competence in socio-cultural diversity and in project management-Continuing education project for young men and women in the Arab region
Societies in the Arab world are undergoing a radical and highly complex process of change. The share of the population that is less than 30 years of age represents up to 60% of the total population, depending on the country. This means that the socio-economic and socio-political shaping of societies in the Arab region depends crucially on the current capabilities of this young generation.
In recent years, young men and women have joined forces in various forms of organization or associations, are involved in a wide variety of fields, are networked locally, regionally and in some cases internationally, and have a strong influence on social processes. With a basic attitude favoring the cooperative organization of their socio-culturally diverse coexistence and with extremely scarce resources, they are resolutely opposed to the systematic destruction of their livelihoods by openly internationally organized and financed terror.
Since 2016 medipalestine has supported the continuing education project led by the IKM Institute for Intercultural Communication and Management to promote cooperative leadership skills in socio-cultural diversity for young women and men in Arab countries.

Projects in Syria
Projects in cooperation with the university hospitals in Damascus
In 2018, a training room for the approximately 120 assistant physicians will be set up at the gynecological clinic of Damascus University. The aim of the project is to train doctors in laparoscopic surgical methods (also called laparoscopy or buttonhole surgery). The room will be equipped with a laparoscopy simulator and an electronic library. In addition, fast internet access will be installed and the necessary technical resources made available so that congresses and further-education events can be broadcast and training films watched in future.
With professional and financial support from medipalestine, two operating theatres will be equipped with new laparoscopic instruments. Operations are also carried out jointly in order to network specialist competencies.
With the support of medipalestine, the formation of a tumor board at the Damascus University clinics is being promoted.
In cooperation with Damascus University Hospital, the establishment of a breast centre is being planned.
Project for professional exchange:
We organize and support the participation of Syrian physicians at congresses in Europe and invite them to visit hospitals in Switzerland.
Dr. Mayada Romieh, Medical Director of the University Women’s Hospital in Damascus, was a visiting physician at the Women’s Practice Lucerne, the Hirslandenklinik St. Anna in Lucerne and the Breast Centre in Zurich from 27 October to 9 November 2017. She also attended the 20th ESGO Congress for Gynecological Oncology in Vienna from 4 to 7 November 2017.
Project Breast Prothesis
Project Breast Prosthesis,
In many regions of the world, as in Palestine, numerous cancer patients who have had breasts amputated have no access to reconstructive surgery and cannot afford the breast prosthesis commercially available. Many of these women suffer from their externally visible affliction. Moreover, the missing breast replacement can lead to chronic life-long postural defects.
Mrs. Paula Jacob and Mr. Schunke from Switzerland have designed a breast prosthesis from inexpensive materials and manufactured and further developed prototypes. Because of the simple process of manufacture and ease of handling, medipalestine is interested in their invention.
The two creators of the product are making their concept available to us. Members of the association are being trained in the manufacturing process and can pass on their acquired know-how to local charitable organizations or to skilled seamstresses in various regions of the world. In this way it is possible to provide those women affected with affordable prosthesis.
In 2013 medipalestine will begin with the implementation of the project in Palestine.
The association will evaluate procurement channels for suitable materials, document the manufacturing technique and brief staff on applying the prosthesis for patients in need.
Local seamstresses are being trained in the manufacture of these special inserts for the bras available. medipalestine is in the process of acquiring and securing funding for the project.
