Medical fraternity in UAE explains why prevention is the key to health
In the words of the UAE President, His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE’s Centennial 2071 project emphasises on its goal “for future generations to live a happier life in a better environment, with bigger opportunities and stronger communication with the world.” Based on the four pillars of education, economy, government development and community cohesion, this future blueprint that will aid the UAE to become the best country in the world, however, requires a critical component to hold it all together and make it click — healthcare
The nation’s leadership has always been of the view that a happy and cohesive society cannot be achieved if overall healthcare is compromised and UAE residents do not have access to the highest standards of healthcare in the world. And this makes the argument more sound that preventive rather than curative healthcare is the way to go.
The nation’s well established and burgeoning healthcare sector has nurtured some of the world’s best medical institutions and talents in healthcare and speaking exclusively to GN Focus on the occasion of World Health Day and its related theme of health for all, representatives from the UAE healthcare industry align with the narrative drawn by the UAE leadership on the importance of preventive health to achieve a cohesive society and health and well-being for all.
