In May 2010, His Excellency Dr. Abdullah Al Rabeeah (previous) Minister of Health of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) visited Emory University, Rollins School of Public Health (RSPH) to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU). This MOU contained elements of collaboration that included the challenge to train MoH staff in the sciences of public health practice (e.g., epidemiology, biostatistics, program monitoring and evaluation, public health surveillance).
