Shaikha al Jufairi named brand ambassador of ‘Screen for Life’ Sep 18, 2019 0 750 12345 Tribune News NetworkDohaIN a move to enhance its breast and bowel cancer screening awareness outreach, the Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) has joined hands with pioneering Central Municipal Council (CMC) Member and Head of Legal Committee Shaikha bint Youssef bin Hassan al Jufairi. Jufairi takes up the role of a brand ambassador of PHCC’s ‘Screen for Life’ Program. Shaikha al Jufairi joins a select group of high-profile personalities, who over the years have supported the ‘Screen for Life’ cause, which aims to make every citizen of Qatar aware of the importance of timely screening for breast and bowel cancer. Other brand ambassadors have included prominent Qatari wife, mother and philanthropist Sheikha Leena bint Nasser bin Khaled al Thani; Chef Aisha al Tamimi; actor Adel al Ansari and journalist and TV anchor Aqeel Saleh al Janahi, who was appointed an ambassador of the programme last March. Dr Shaikha Abu Shaikha, PHCC’s manager of Screening Programs, said, “As the first woman to gain voters’ trust for three consecutive sessions of the CMC, Shaikha bint Youssef bin Hassan al Jufairi is much admired, particularly within our target audience of those aged between 45 -69. Her influence, therefore, will go a long way to making people aware of our mission and we are extremely grateful to her for agreeing to be a part of Qatar’s national screening programme.”A prominent Qatari politician who holds a Bachelor of Law degree from the Arab University of Beirut, Shaikha al Jufairi has already used her influence to transform the traditional view of Qatari women. Her extensive public service career has been recognisedat several local, regional and international platforms.Commenting on the appointment, Shaikha al Jufairi said, “I readily accept the responsibility of this position to help drive conversion to this vital and life-saving cause. Breast and bowel cancer are the most commonly diagnosed cancers in Qatar and a leading cause of death among men and women in the State. If my influence can help expand the highly proactive ‘Screen for Life’ campaigns by convincing members of the public to apply for screening at any of PHCC’s outstanding screening suites in Al Wakra, Leabaib and Rawdat Al Khail Health Centers, I will feel gratified and honoured.” Pages 12345 RELATED ARTICLES FM RECEIVES MESSAGE FROM VENEZUELA FM Sep 18, 2019 0 592 Hammadi Meets Ambassador of Serbia Sep 18, 2019 0 601 Msheireb Properties awarded for promoting nationalisation efforts Sep 18, 2019 0 751 ‘Oktoberfest’ returns to InterContinental Doha Tribune News Network Doha Running for more than 10 years, the world-famous Bavarian festival, ‘Oktoberfest’, will return at the iconic InterContinental Doha for two weekends in a row in October.
