In the past few decades, the Arab region as a whole has made
significant strides forward in health development and in improving the
overall health and life expectancy of populations. However, the region
also faces tremendous health challenges. A new Lancet Series focuses
on priority health issues in the Arab world, based on evidence
interpreted mainly by scholars from the region, and adopts a
multidisciplinary approach that includes medical, public health,
social, and political perspectives.

Stanford scholars took a leading role in crafting The Lancet's new
series on Health in the Arab World. In this presentation, they will
discuss the relationship between governance and health in the Arab
World.
