The purpose of the Weqaya screening program is to give Abu Dhabi Emirate’s population a critical analysis and insight into their personal health status, and aims to empower the community to take the necessary action to improve their health and wellbeing. Around 96% of Emirati nationals (over 18 years), across Abu Dhabi have been screened. It measures the risks of suffering from diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, which are amongst the most common disorders to affect Abu Dhabi’s local population and for which the UAE overall has some of the highest rates in the world, for each individual.”The Weqaya screening program encourages Emiratis to take action for their future, to live healthier lives, enabling them to enjoy their families, children and grandchildren for years to come.” said HAAD and encourages all Emiratis to make Weqaya a part of their everyday life, to empower them and the people around them to live healthier lives for generations to come. During the month of June, individual report cards will be delivered to families across the Emirate, containing the results of the Weqaya screening program. The report cards will contain advice on how people can improve their results for the future, through changes in lifestyle such as diet and exercise, and how they can seek further medical advice.
