Saad Abdel-Salam al-Nayef is the Minister of Health of Syria[1] since August 25, 2012 when he was sworn in by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.[2] He was appointed to the position after his predecessor, Wael Nader Al-Halqi, was appointed Prime Minister on 9 August 2012.[3]


On May 16, 2013, the United States Treasury Department designated four senior Syrian officials, including al-Nayef, for "backing the government of Bashar Al-Assad in suppressing people or involvement in terrorism".[4][5]
