Kosovo Minister of Health Dr. Ferid Agani is on campus this week giving lectures, meeting with faculty and students, and touring Dartmouth facilities. Agani, Kosovo’s Minister of Health since 2011, gave two lectures this week on “Rebuilding Medical Systems in a Post-Conflict Nation.”
In this video, Agani discusses the importance of collaboration between Dartmouth and Kosovo and what the two sides can learn from each other.
Agani previously served as a member of the Kosovo Parliament, as professor of psychiatry at the University of Prishtina, and as chairman of the National Mental Health Council of Kosovo.
Dartmouth has had strong ties with Kosovo since the war with Serbia ended in 1999, first providing medical care in the war-torn region and later through a partnership with American University in Kosovo. Since 1999, Dartmouth has sent and hosted more than 200 faculty and students on medical exchanges with Kosovo, and welcomed Kosovo President Atifete Jahjaga to campus in March 2012.
