Host Institution

​The Lancet and the American University of Beirut (AUB) through its Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) have teamed up to establish the Lancet-American University of Beirut Commission on Syria: Health in Conflict​​.  The FHS hosts and leads the Commission and its Secretariat.

The Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS)​ is a leading school of public health in the Arab and Eastern Mediterranean​ region.  Established in 1954, it is also one of the oldest such schools. 

The American University of Beirut (AUB)​ is an institution of higher learning and research that is deeply rooted in the​ region with strong international networks​.

Through this Commission, The Lancet and the Faculty of Health Sciences build on prior collaboration to advance global discussions on health issues in the region including the Lancet series on Health in the Arab world: A view from within, published in 2014.  The series included an examination of the impact of the Iraq and Syrian wars on changing geography of health provision in the region.  

Several faculty members from FHS and other AUB faculties have served on prior or current Lancet Commissions. 

This is the first time an AUB faculty hosts and leads a Lancet Commission
