COMMENTARY

Telemedicine made a slow start, but Covid-19 has given it a boost. While many physicians and patients remain reluctant, despite compelling benefits, much of the hesitancy is due to false perceptions about its efficacy. Dr. Omar Al-Ubaydli looks into the reasons why health systems should embrace it.

In July 2021, 130 countries announced coordinated reforms to prevent multinationals evading tax. Many rejoiced at the prospect of Amazon and Facebook finally paying their fair share. However, unless we see suitable reforms on the spending side of the government budget equation, it could turn into a power grab by entrenched elites.

PUBLICATIONS

Derasat’s recent book focuses on the official and civil efforts of Bahrain in response to the invasion and liberation of Kuwait in 1991 and the Kingdom’s role to maintaining Arab Gulf stability.
