Indonesian Ambassador to Qatar Air Marshal (Retd) HE Muhammad Basri Sidehabi organised cancer-prevention lectures for compatriots, inviting Indonesian delegates of Permata Harapan Cancer Centre (PHCC) Surakarta and Megapolitan Smart Services (MSS) to his residence recently. The delegates were led by Deddy Saiful Hadi, the former Indonesian ambassador to Qatar, who is also on the advisory board of PHCC Surakarta and the MSSJ Chairman.
Ambassador Basri appreciated the role of PHCC and MSS for their contribution in raising health awareness, particularly about cancer, in Indonesia. He conveyed his appreciation and thanks to Deddy for his contribution in enhancing bilateral relations between two countries during his tenure as ambassador to Qatar from 2012 to 2016.
Deddy said his visit to Qatar is to show his commitment to contribute in strengthening Indonesia-Qatar bilateral relations. The seven delegates accompanying him included PHCC President Director Dr Heru Priyanto Samadi, PHCC Surakarta CEO Desi Mayasari Djamaluddin, MSSJ Director Leny Maryouri Anna Watie, PHCC Surakarta R&D Manager Widya Destiny Setiawan, MSSJ Director Agus Setyadi, and Public Notary Rizky G Partakusuma.
The programme continued with a series of lectures ono cancer by Dr Heru Priyanto. In his lecture, PHCC Surakarta President Director said that the number of people with cancer continues to increase due to lifestyle changes , unhealthy food, and increasingly complex psychological pressure.
Heru, who is also an oncology consultant, added that almost 70% of people with cancer seek medical attention late, when it is too difficult to handle. The PHCC Surakarta chief said that cervical and breast cancers had the maximum number of people affected in Indonesia.
During their visit from March 3 to 6, delegates paid visits to various authorities concerned in Qatar such as Al Faisal Holding and QBA Chairman, Hamad and Sidra Hospital, Qatar Charity, Qatar Chamber and others, to hold wide-ranging talks on ways to enhance bilateral relations and develop areas of co-operation, particularly in the health sector. The delegation's visit to Qatar is to follow-up on the cooperation after the two countries signed a memorandum of understanding on health, when the Emir His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani visited Indonesia on October 18-19, 2017.
