The Arab Institute for Women


The Unsung Heroes and Heroines of Lebanon’s Healthcare System

The Arab Institute for Women (AiW) at the Lebanese American University (LAU) is launching a series of four mini policy briefs based on interviews with experts in the fields of health, psychology, education, and economics in order to address the major repercussions of the economic and public health crises dominating Lebanon. The insights revealed in these concise briefs serve as a potential precursor to prompt action in support of Lebanon’s healthy recovery.
This is the first policy brief of the series, that tackles the ramifications borne by Lebanon’s nursing sector amid the twin crisis. The brief is based on an interview conducted with Dr. Myrna Abi Abdallah-Doumit, Associate Professor at LAU and President of the Order of Nurses in Lebanon.
