Distinguished Participants, Ladies, and gentlemen,

It is with great pleasure and anticipation that I extend a warm welcome to every one of you to the first Gulf Healthcare and Sport Congress, set to take place on the 9th and 10th of November 2023. As we eagerly look forward to this highly anticipated event, hosted at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain, we acknowledge the significance of coming together in person after the challenging years defined by the global pandemic.

This congress serves as a platform for collaboration, fostering partnerships, and facilitating the exchange of knowledge and innovative ideas among healthcare and sports professionals. Our goal is to tap into the current trends in these fields, bringing together expert scholars, leaders, and practitioners from national, regional, and international arenas. We will focus on nursing, allied health, and sports sciences, creating an environment conducive to learning, growth, and advancement.


We aim to promote knowledge exchange, share successful experiences, and enhance sustainable and innovative practices in healthcare and sport. By exploring the intersection of these two crucial areas, we can contribute to the overall well-being of individuals in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region. Through this congress, we hope to inspire and empower our participants to make a lasting impact on the healthcare and sports sectors.

I encourage all attendees of healthcare providers, sports scientists, researchers, academics, policymakers, or industry experts, to seize this valuable opportunity for networking and collaboration. It is through forging connections and pooling our collective expertise that we can drive meaningful change and progress.

Furthermore, I urge our esteemed guests and keynote speakers to immerse themselves in the rich heritage, culture, and warm hospitality of the Kingdom of Bahrain. This vibrant country offers a unique experience that complements the intellectual and professional stimulation of our congress. Take the time to explore its wonders and make lasting memories.

Once again, I extend my sincere welcome to each one of you. I am confident that your productive involvement and active participation will make this congress fruitful and successful. Let us seize this opportunity to embark on a journey of discovery, collaboration, and innovation, all aimed at transforming healthcare and sports in our region.

Thank you, and may our united endeavors guarantee the triumph of this esteemed congress.
