Vice-Chancellor for Social Affairs of the Iran University of Medical Sciences
Seyed Ali Javad Moosavi, MD



The Vice-Chancellor’s Office for Social Affairs of the Iran University of Medical Sciences was established in line with the policies and under the supervision of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education in order to utilize the massive capacity of public participation in healthcare and to implement Paragraph 11 of the Macro Health Policies issued by the Supreme Leader. These policies are concerned with increasing awareness, accountability, ability, and active structured participation at individual, family and society levels in providing, maintaining and promoting health by means of cultural and educational institutions and Iranian media.
Management of social capacities of the healthcare sector in the regions covered by the university and directing them in line with development and promotion of the healthcare system through organizing, developing and supporting charitable organizations and NGOs, as well as effective communication with the inter-sectoral departments and intra-sectoral organizations are among activities this Vice-Chancellor’s Office is tasked with.

Hopefully, this will be achieved through cooperation and synergy of all thinkers, faculty members, managers, and university staff and students, as well as constructive interaction with intragovernmental organizations, NGOs and charitable institutes active in healthcare affairs.
