Welcome Message from the Congress President

On behalf of the Scientific Committee, it is with great honor to invite you to participate in the 7th MENA Stroke Congress which will take place on 5–6 of November 2021. As we are adapting with the global situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the congress will happen in a HYBRID setting with physical location in the Kingdom of Bahrain which that will gather healthcare professionals across the globe.

The congress committee has worked to build on the great historical success of the previous Congresses, and have managed to put together a rich program with a participation of renowned international and regional faculty, whom during the two days will present cutting edge topics in the field of stroke, with over 500 neurologist and other healthcare professionals from the region.

This year’s plenary sessions will address a broad range of topics that, healthcare providers will find very useful in their daily practice including: Stroke Care after COVID-19 Era, The Future of Stroke Care in the MENA Region, Long-Term Plan for Stroke in the Arab World, and 2030 Action Plan from worldwide stroke organizations. Likewise, debate sessions are expected to raise the most dynamic and controversial topics facing clinicians in the fields of stroke in an exciting interactive forum that, I trust, will enhance the healthcare professional’s knowledge.

The congress is endorsed by the World Stroke Organization, American Heart Association/ American Stroke Association, and the Pan Arab Union of Neurological Societies.

We highly recommend you to take part in this congress by attending the event which will be a scientifically and socially rewarding that will give you a memorable and enjoyable experience.
