Head of the Society's message

Dear respected members of Iraqi Society of Haematology ,

The Iraqi society of haematology (ISOH) aims to contribute to the development of medicine by leading the development of the treatment and research of hematologic diseases for the cure or better quality of life for the patients. We have made continued and concerted efforts for the improved clinical and research outcomes in diverse disciplines related to the hematology including internal medicine, pediatrics, laboratory medicine, pathology and basic medicine. Close interdisciplinary collaboration has been a prerequisite in all areas including hematology to date and will continue to be so in the future. These types of close collaboration will play even larger roles, and ISOH will serve as the ground for the collaborative research. ISOH has continually strived to acquire the latest hematological knowledge, practice the highest standards of advanced medical technology, and provide the best care for hematologic patients relying on us for the treatment. We have been diligent in conducting practical research that can identify the etiology of the haematologic diseases or be directly implemented to hematological treatment in clinical practice. Along with the on-going research on the hematology, more promotional activities should be carried out alongside for the better public awareness of the various efforts made by ISOH and we should request for the improvement and change in the unreasonable system or regulations in a unified and systematic manner so that all our efforts can lead to tangible results. Since the spring of 2006, ISOH has annually hosted the national Conference & Annual Meeting for Iraqi Society of Haematology , which positions us to be a leader in the international hematology. We would appreciate your continued interest, participation and advice as we continue to develop ISOH through close collaboration in the areas of treatment, training and research between all ISOH members in the midst of their difficult and busy work environments. Thank you for your support.
