DUBAI, August 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
In recent years The Gulf countries have seen great improvements in healthcare infrastructure and services thanks to a very strong and growing economy. However, the region is suffering from an increased sedentary lifestyle, resulting in a dramatic rise of chronic disease cases and related ailments in the younger generation.
The welfare and health of children is paramount for all healthcare practitioners and advocates. GCC health authorities are looking to dramatically improve the care of children by establishing healthcare facilities, increasing awareness about diseases and organising medical conferences to further the knowledge required about diseases.
In order to improve children's healthcare it is important that leaders of the GCC health community come together and unite in reviewing current issues and recent advances to better children's healthcare for the future.
This is the aim of the GCC Paediatric Summit, taking place at the Dusit Thani hotel in Dubai on 28th & 29th September 2011. Improving children's quality of life by bringing together the regions elite in paediatric medical care.

This is an exclusive chance to hear leaders of the field share their learning and experience on subjects such as 'Revealing the role of innovative technologies in addressing neonatology concerns' and 'Overcoming key challenges in diagnosis and management of the most important paediatric disorders'.
