The role of patients in times of peace and crisis
19th July 2019
The role of patients in the healthcare system is vital yet often downplayed. Hon. Yuthar Mohammed AlRawahy, Founder & Honorary Life President of the Oman Cancer Association (OCA), is a four-time cancer survivor and through her self-empowerment, she managed to mobilize the Omani community and enact a staggering evolution in the areas of cancer awareness, advocacy, screening and palliation. This success has positively impacted not only her locality but the regional and global institutions in this dynamic space: the space that bridges social activism with healthcare provision and creates endless opportunities for public-private-civil partnership.
