New Course for Screening Campaigns During Arab Health Congress

UAE Genetic Disease Association (UAEGDA), the sole non-profit genetics organization in the UAE, has concluded a fruitful week of discussions with regional and international bodies during the group’s first appearance at Congress earlier this week. As a first-time exhibitor, UAEGDA says that the experience has proven extraordinarily valuable and that the Health Authority of Dubai has played a tremendous role in raising local awareness of battling genetic diseases in the country.

Listed under Dubai’s Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department, UAEGDA strives to reduce the prevalence and impact of common genetic disorders through sponsoring nation-wide education and screening campaigns.

During the week-long congress, UAEGDA connected with other GCC organizations to identify methods in which regional entities from the public, private and non-profit sectors can align business interests and public policy to advance screening campaigns in the upcoming year.

“Regional coordination is extremely important for an organization like ours because of the high number of expatriate populations in UAE. Arab Health is an ideal platform for us to communicate our message to GCC professionals and likeminded groups from around the globe,”

comments H.E. Dr. Maryam Matar, Executive Director of UAEGDA.

This year’s Arab Health Congress included 17 internationally-accredited conferences addressed by nearly 400 acclaimed speakers from around the globe. With an estimated value of around $80bn per year, preventative medicine and routine screenings have been hot topics within the Middle East healthcare market.
