Welcome to the 8th MENATOX "Clinical Toxicology" Conference

On behalf of the Middle East & North Africa Clinical Toxicology Association, we welcome you to the eighth edition of MENATOX, the first of its kind in Kuwait. The MENATOX conference will be held from the 6th of March to the 9th of March 2019, in partnership with the Council of Emergency Medicine and Kuwait Ministry of Health. Clinical Toxicology is the discipline of Medicine that focuses on evaluating and treating poisoned and envenomed patients. It covers a wide range of toxic exposures including medications/drugs, chemical, biological, radiological, environmental and occupational, whether it is intentional or unintentional.
Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Middle East & North Africa Clinical Toxicology Association, we would like to welcome each of you to MENATOX19, which will be held at the Jaber Al-Ahmad Convention Center on March 6 - 9, 2019 in partnership with the Kuwait Emergency Medicine Council and the Kuwait Ministry of Health.

It is a challenging time for Clinical Toxicology in the MENA region as armed conflicts, population displacement and political climates in parts of our region, have amplified the potential impact of chemicals, toxins and radioactive materials on the health of our communities. The World Health Organization has also emphasized the importance of mitigating chemical hazards in its most recent road map that lists Sustained Development Goals related to our area of expertise and interest.

With all of the above in mind, we bring to you several events that are packaged into MENATOX 8th, that which includes a 4-day scientific assembly: Medical Toxicology in the MENA Region: The Journey Ahead!

In this assembly, we will feature our traditional popular sessions: Tox for the Emergency Department, Oral Abstracts, Rapid Fire, Critical Care Tox, Pediatric Tox, Occupational and Environmental Tox, Poison Center Administration, and Analytical Toxicology. In addition, we are introducing new sessions that we promise will become your new favorites: Poison the Panel, Poison Past and Tox Myth Busters. Recognizing the importance of drug abuse in our clinical practice, we will hold a session on Medication-Assisted Treatment of Opioid Dependence.

On the 8th and 9th of March, we will bring to Kuwait a Chemical Emergency workshop, which the details of will be announced soon. For our Emergency Medicine residents, we will offer a unique Practical Research workshop on Saturday, in which they will learn valuable research skills in Emergency Medicine. We continue to grow, remaining always adaptable, motivated and responsive to the needs of the diverse Middle East & North Africa region. The world of Clinical Toxicology is an exciting area in which we continue to meet and bring inspired people together in forums like this, which thus ensures the Middle East & North Africa Clinical Toxicology Association remains at the cutting edge. We are transforming the way we operate to continuously improve our ability to promote Clinical Toxicology education, practice, and research in MENA.

To conclude, we would like to thank each of you for attending our conference and bringing your expertise to our gathering. You, as health care leaders and practitioners, have the vision, the knowledge, and the experience to help Clinical Toxicology thrive and be an integral part of this region’s health eco-system. Throughout this conference, we ask you to stay engaged, keep us proactive, and help us shape the future of Clinical Toxicology.

Thank you for your involvement, advocacy, and efforts.
Dr. Abdullatif Al-Oumi
