Celebration of the Third Decade of the Saudi Conjoined Twins Separation Program in Riyadh

On November 24 and 25, the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center in Saudi Arabia will organize an international conference to commemorate the 30 years of the Saudi Conjoined Twins Separation Program in Riyadh.

Since its inception in 1990, the innovative program has treated 135 conjoined twins from 25 different countries, showcasing the Kingdom’s superiority in providing sophisticated medical care.

Hassana and Hasina, conjoined twins from Nigeria, were split in March of this year by a Saudi medical team under the direction of Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah at King Abdullah Specialist Children’s Hospital at King Abdulaziz Medical City in Riyadh.

Held under King Salman’s sponsorship, the conference commemorates the program’s three decades. Representatives from international humanitarian and health groups, associations, and institutions will be present, together with officials from the Saudi ministries of the National Guard, Defense, Foreign Affairs, Health, Education, and Media.

The Saudi relief organization told Arab News in a statement that families of split twins will also be present at the ceremony.

It further stated that experts will talk about developments in separated conjoined twins and associated humanitarian activities.

To highlight the program’s accomplishments and the Kingdom’s leadership in the humanitarian and medical domains, an exhibition will also be arranged.
