This step ensures keeping up with the growing demand for medical care in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. Zaid Al Siksek, chief executive officer of the HAAD commented “In addition, 125 other healthcare institutions and 33 pharmaceutical companies are awaiting initial approval for their licenses. In the next year, we will see growing contribution to healthcare in the emirate from the private sector. Critical gaps identified in oncological, pediatric and psychiatric care will also be filled”.
