Release of Bergaoui’s “History of Tunisian Medicine, from Carthage to Date”

“Medicine and Doctors of Tunisia, from Carthage to Date,” is the title of a book which epitomizes the landmarks of Tunisian medicine since the foundation of Carthage to modern times.

The work was publicized on February 13 at Sophonisbe Cultural Space at Carthage with attendance of Public Health Minister, Mondher Zenaidi, and Minister Advisor to the President of the Republic, Mohamed Gueddiche.

Authored by Mohamed Bergaoui, documentalist and journalist the 256 page work explores a varied heritage passed on by the founding fathers of Tunisian medicine to contemporary Tunisian doctors, highlighting the success and progress of this science which has allowed Tunisia to rank among the leading destinations in the world.

The author says he sought to accompany the reader on a journey into the history of medicine which spans Ancient Greece, Egypt and Carthage laying special focus on key dates and key figures having contributed to the progress of this practice before addressing modern times which have witnessed the shaping of what was to become Tunisian medicine.

The second part is fully devoted to Tunisian medicine. With supporting photos Bergaoui depicts the portraits of forty doctors and surgeons who embody the evolution of Tunisian medicine. They are pioneers and post- Independence founders who performed the first successful transplants (kidney, heat and liver) and renowned women practitioners.

Among the leading portraits are those of professors Salah Azaiez, Mahmoud Matri and most particularly Tawhida Ben Cheikh, the first Tunisian woman to exercise this profession in the Aran Wold, as early as 1930.

The book also provides information about the positive indicators of the health sector (number specialities, hospitals, public and private clinics, medical students, and medical teaching establishments…).

Several practitioners, media people and writers attended the vent which was sponsored by the Tunisian Medical Science Society.
