Improving Healthcare in Dubai – message from the Director-General of the Dubai Health Authority
Improving the health and wellbeing of the people of Dubai and providing residents as well as visitors with access to high quality healthcare is a priority for the Dubai Health Authority (DHA).
Over the last few years, Dubai has seen a phenomenal growth in the health sector and this has been possible due to the vision of our leader, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, who has given significant importance to the health sector in the Dubai Strategic Plan 2015.
Keeping HH’s vision in mind, and in line with the objectives of the Dubai Health Sector Strategy 2011-2013, the DHA is working at all levels from health policy to community awareness with an aim to provide our population with high quality healthcare services.
Better health, access, quality and efficiency are central themes of the DHA to ensure we fulfil our objectives.
We are following a multidisciplinary approach and are taking a microscopic look into various aspects of health promotion and healthcare service delivery as well as health regulation, medical education, training and funding, to ensure holistic development of the sector, so as to provide world-class health services to our nationals, residents and visitors in Dubai.
