Bernard Kouchner a former French Minister and the founder of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and Médecins du Monde, will deliver the keynote address at the conference, which takes place at The Address Hotel Downtown Dubai on 1st May.

Commenting on why Bernard Kouchner had been invited to speak at the conference, MSH CEO Brigitte Chemla said:
“Bernard Kouchner is passionate about universal healthcare and has a wealth of experience, both in the political arena and from a humanitarian perspective having worked around the world in some of the most extreme conditions during manmade and natural disasters.

“He is a thought leader on global healthcare issues. A captivating speaker and a real inspiration to those involved in the industry at all levels. I am convinced that delegates at the conference will, without question, be inspired by this extraordinary man,” added Ms. Chemla,

“Mandatory healthcare for all is being rolled out across the GCC and is the topic of the moment in the healthcare industry in this region. This is therefore the right time to start a meaningful dialogue on the issues surrounding this issue. Our objective is to spark debate and discussion amongst the healthcare community,” said Dubai Insurance CEO, Abdellatif Abuqurah.

The longstanding healthcare proposal is to provide all UAE residents – regardless of nationality or income – with access to healthcare under an initiative towards launching a national health insurance scheme to provide medical cover for all people living in the UAE.

The proposal is designed to cover the basic healthcare needs of all UAE residents and provide funding for future investment in the country’s healthcare infrastructure. The compulsory national health insurance scheme would be funded by employers and individual subscribers.

Bernard Kouchner has served in several political posts in France, other than foreign affairs, he was France’s first Minister of Humanitarian Affairs followed by a period as French Minister of Health and has continued to exert pressure to allocate resources for the medical problems of needy populations throughout the world.
Mr. Kouchner founded and was appointed as the first director of “Médecins Sans Frontières in 1971”. Also known as Doctors without Borders, the organisation delivers emergency medical aid to victims of armed conflicts, epidemics, and natural and manmade disasters and to others who lack healthcare because of social and geographic isolation.
