MEAHI Governance Hierarchy 

In order to expedite the deployment of the MEAHI strategy, and to execute the MEAHI vision, the MEAHI Governance shall be strengthened during the MEAHI social encounter phase ( 2013 onwards ). A fine-tuning on MEAHI structural , and functional models has been proposed by MEAHI founding president to the MEAHI General Assembly on 23 April 2013 at Crown Plaza Deira , Dubai , UAE , which have been agreed by the majority  in principle, then during the MEAHI board meeting dated on  24 April 2013 at Crown Plaza Deira, Dubai, its details discussed , and agreed by the majority to be taken into action .

This fine-tuning emerged from a decade of experiences gained for MEAHI development phases, the necessity for Good Management Practice ( GMP) , and transparency of the role of the MEAHI Governance Hierarchy's entities , and formative and summative assessments of the MEAHI administration in order to sustain an agile & accountable organization based on lessons learned , and regional priorities .The related MEAHI bylaws’ articles, which were affected, accordingly will be submitted to the IMIA board for final endorsement.
