DHA will Expand Healthcare Facilities across New Dubai

DubaiThe Dubai Health Authority () has put expansion plans aiming to increase healthcare facilities in . Those plans are part of the Dubai Health Strategy aiming to develop all aspects of healthcare during 2011-2013. Dr Laila Al Jasimi, CEO of Health Policy and Strategy at the DHA commented “As of now, we know that healthcare facilities are concentrated mostly in Deira and Bur Dubai and New Dubai does not have enough healthcare facilities. We are trying to increase and encourage investment in the new areas including free zones”.

Through the capacity plan, an insight into the future health needs of Dubai is accessible by studying existing projects. “We also have land allocated by the government for increasing healthcare services in residential areas. We are looking into the existing and the future projections required which will show us new services to be looked at and the existing ones that are not required anymore. Until then, we encourage investment.” She said.

She added “We are looking at different geographical areas of Dubai to assess how many healthcare services we have and if they fulfill the future volume of the healthcare systems that the emirate would require. Results from the study will also help in promoting healthcare investment both in the government and private sector. To direct proper investment in healthcare in Dubai, we have to understand the service”.

For the last quarter of 2011, the authority will operate some strategies to decrease the burden of communicable diseases in Dubai, smoking among youth, workplace injuries, and oversee treatments and to increase physical activity among school children. Dr Laila revealed “Policies have never been there to support the educational campaigns that we have been carried out and this is what we plan to develop. We are reviewing certain regulatory measures”. Commenting on medical tourism, Dr Laila said “It was imperative to develop a strong healthcare system comprising accredited facilities and credentialized professionals”.
