DHA to Join InnovHealth Aiming to Raise Awareness for Tuberculosis

Dubai Health Authority () will participate in the InnovHealth Innovations Summit, hosted by business information group naseba, in Abu Dhabi on April 25th-26th. The DHA aims to raise awareness for Tuberculosis (TB) in the region.

The DHA is keen to use InnovHealth 2010’s strategic platform to reach a selective audience of leading health authorities and professionals from across the region. It is calling for a unified reporting mechanism in the country to fortify proposed laws to ensure that people coming to reside in the UAE from a TB endemic country are screened before leaving.

Dr. Ali Hassan Al Marzooqi, Director of Public Health, DHA said “Consider the unique population demography in the GCC and in particular Dubai, where we are witnessing huge number of people from TB endemic countries coming to live and work. While TB is considered an easy disease to diagnose and manage with relatively inexpensive medicine, adhering to treatment protocols is very important, and many patients fail to do so. Most countries are equipped to deal with it, so it’s just a matter of creating awareness and gaining cooperation.”

Dr. Al Marzooqi urged health organisations to play an active role and take responsibility for issues: “Summits that cover an important topic such as the ones covered here [InnovHealth 2010] are rare. This is an excellent opportunity to explore and identify best public health practices in the region and to open dialogue between key figures in this field.”

This fifth edition of naseba‘s Middle East Summit will feature networking sessions and discussions designed to result in potential solutions for coping with TB and other issues faced by the Middle East’s , including infrastructure adequacy, healthcare reforms, cancer treatment and more.
