Al Murooshid said that “Over the past few years healthcare in Dubai has seen a tremendous growth and this has been possible because of the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Rule of Dubai who has given significant importance to the health sector in the Dubai strategic plan 2015,” added. “Dubai is aware of the huge impact that hosting this conference will have and that it will greatly contribute to further creating much-needed awareness about heart diseases.”
