Yesterday, 120 female members of health workers from the north and east regions of Syria participated in the first health conference which was held in Aram Tikran Center for Culture and Art in the town of Rumailan.
On the purpose of the conference and the desired results of it, Hawar news agency met with a number of participants.
Rabrin Hassen said that throughout history, women have contributed to the discovery and manufacture of medicines from nature. She also supervised the treatment of diseases, "as the woman used to run the family and the surrounding community."
Rabrin added: "The capitalist regimes sought to reduce the role of women in societies, exclude them from the health sector, and place them at the service of their systems to eliminate natural remedies and medicines to serve their interests in the manufacture of chemotherapy."
Rabrin also said: "The outbreak of the Rojava revolution was a response to the approach of the capitalist regimes, as it succeeded in establishing a democratic system in which all segments of society participated. The health sector has promoted a new stage and is trying to return to natural treatment and activating the role of women, since health is linked to the nature of women since ancient times."
Rabrin added: "The developed countries also suffered and stood helpless in the face of the Corona virus epidemic that spread around the world."
She noted that the health sector in northern and eastern Syria has suffered greatly as a result of the wars in the region, but the health sector has started taking effective steps, "and despite the difficulties, the Autonomous Administration has provided with its simple capabilities a better reality in the health field."
Rabrin added: "Women were the first to educate their family and society in health care in particular. They occupy more than 80% of institutions and health centers, and they have played a pioneering role in this sector."
For her part, Nour Ajeel from Deir ez-Zor congratulated the conference, wishing that its decisions would serve the development of women in the field of health, noting that women worked diligently in the public health field.
Nour added: "Women have potential power and are able to reach the highest ranks, and we hope that the decisions will emerge from this conference to contribute to strengthening the role of women in northern and eastern Syria."
