Dr. Hani Jahshan

Until 2012, Dr. Hani Jashan was a consultant forensic pathologist and a Forensic Physician at the Ministry of Health and at the Family Protection Directorate of the Public Security Department in Amman, Jordan. The best definition of his professional specialty as a forensic pathologist and Forensic Physician is "The Application of Medical Knowledge to the Administration of Law and to the furthering of Justice". He believes that the broad meaning of "furthering Justice" should be extended beyond the legal system to include social justice and preventing any violation of Human Rights.

Through my specialty, he is dedicated to a wide range of high-quality, high-value, and independent forensic medical and scientific services. In a spirit of public duty, he believes that our mission in Forensic Medicine is to help people live healthy lives, both physically and mentally, in a just and safe environment, both at the family and society levels, through (1) the persistent application of evidence-based quality justice and human rights in the community. (2) Reinforcing the Family as the unit of a healthy society by reducing family violence and child abuse (3) Supporting public health and safe communities initiatives aiming for the reduction of preventable injuries and deaths (4) Reduction of the short- and long-term consequences of violent crime on victims; (5) Support medical and legal education and research.
