Mission Statement
In parallel to the setup of Yaduna, Her Excellency launched a first project focused on women’s health. Upon reviewing the outcome of the women health needs in Lebanon and the region, and assessing the key findings emerging from research and interviews with policy-makers and subject-matter experts (joint effort between Booz & Co. and Yaduna), Her Excellency decided to adopt the concept of a “Medical Center for the screening and prevention of Coronary Heart Disease”: Women Heart Health Center (WHHC).

WHHC provides leadership and financial support in fulfillment of its mission and vision to promote women’s cardiovascular health.

WHHC Mission: To improve women’s cardiovascular health and reduce burden of disease through awareness, prevention, screening, primary treatment and advocacy.

WHHC Vision: To become a model of excellence in preventive and primary treatment of cardiovascular disease in women, regardless of their social and economic background.

By collaborating with academic teams from distinguished national universities and international organizations, the center will implement the highest standards of clinical practice and research.

By generating a comprehensive genetic and clinical database, the center will contribute to formulating a national strategy for prevention and improved care.

Other Activities of WHHC

Besides implementing the highest standards of clinical practice in medical and paramedical services, WHHC activities include the following:

Awareness campaigns: helping prevent disease and promoting early diagnosis.

Education: aiming at enhancing know-how and sharing best-practice standards between the various health service providers.

Research: seeking to develop protocols and intellectual capital that aims to enhance prevention, detection and treatment of heart disease in women. By generating a comprehensive genetic and clinical database, the center will contribute to formulating a national strategy for prevention and improved care.

Lobbying & Advocacy: allowing the amendment of legislation and regulations to ensure that underprivileged women have access to high quality health services.
