πŸŽ‰ Exciting News and Call to Action! πŸŒ

πŸ”¬ Join the Journey with Professor Shereen Hussein as Co-Editor-in-Chief for BMC Population Health Metrics! πŸ“ˆ

🌟 As Professor Shereen Hussein steps into her new role, she extends a warm invitation to all passionate researchers in the MENA region to embark on a transformative journey with BMC Population Health Metrics. Together, let’s push the boundaries of knowledge and contribute to understanding the region’s ageing population health.

πŸ§ πŸ’‘ Focused Direction:

As the recently appointed Co-Editor-in-Chief, Professor Hussein is steering the journal towards a profound emphasis on specific areas that demand our attention. We’re calling for contributions that bring nuanced measurement tools and sensitive methodological approaches to the forefront, especially in the dynamic landscape of technology and healthcare data.

🌍 Tailored Solutions for the Middle East:

Let’s turn our focus to the unique health and long-term care needs of the elderly population in the Middle East. Our goal is to pioneer innovative methodologies capable of measuring both fulfilled and unmet needs. These tools should be adaptable to the rich tapestry of cultural perspectives on ageing and care in the region.

πŸš€ Illuminate Gender-Specific Challenges:

Recognising the vital role of gender equality in healthcare, Professor Hussein urges authors to delve into the intersections with various healthcare aspects. Explore how gender influences workforce dynamics and shapes the quality of care individuals receive. Let’s shine a light on gender-specific challenges and advocate for more equitable and inclusive practices.

🌐 Embrace Advanced Methodologies:

We encourage authors to leverage various data sources and harness cutting-edge tools such as machine learning and Artificial Intelligence in their research. We can revolutionise our understanding of population health by embracing these advanced methodologies.

🀝 Collaborative Efforts:

While we aim for innovation, let’s also acknowledge existing gaps in data and information. This journey requires a collaborative effort within the scientific community. Let’s address these deficiencies and contribute to advancing healthcare research.

πŸ“’ Your Research Matters!

Contribute to BMC Population Health Metrics and be part of the change in understanding, monitoring, and addressing the health and long-term care needs of the ageing population in the Middle East.
