This year’s World Expo focuses on inspiring and meaningful actions to address the world’s most crucial challenges and opportunities.
Dr. Shaya’s session will discuss and offer a solution to one of the biggest challenges the world is currently facing, the medical supply shortage. The COVID-19 pandemic has cause chaos, panic, and widespread loss, but it also brought to light the overwhelming and dangerous inadequacies of the global supply chain for medical equipment, supplies, and personal protective equipment. Dr. Shaya will highlight the outdated and inefficient state of the current global supply chain and offer a refreshing new take on how to reimagine and remodel the global supply chain to face 21st-century challenges by leveraging strategic partnerships in the UAE. Helen Keller said it best. “Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.”
