Awadh Seghayer Al Ketbi

Director-General of the Dubai Health Authority

The creative minds of our people is the true wealth and driving force behind the remarkable developments and achievements that the UAE and the global city of Dubai have witnessed in the last few years.

Dubai Health Authority is aware that developing and taking care of these creative minds is vital, as they are the driving force behind the continuous growth of our country.

Therefore, the authority spares no effort in utilizing the minds of our experienced medical and administrative staff to maintain a happy and healthy society.

It is our responsibility to continue on moving forward to reach our goal of making Dubai the preferred global destination for medical treatment and fulfilling the vision of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, of providing a safe haven for residents and visitors of the city.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Reaching this goal is a natural ambition for Dubai, the flourishing city, which has become a home to people from all over the world, who were inspired by its vision and want to join its movement towards progression.

We believe that we are all responsible for the health and safety of our people and are confident in the capabilities of those concerned in the health sector—be it members of our society or public and private organizations—in fulfilling these desired goals.

May ‘fruitful partnerships’ be our motto, ‘continuous giving’ be our work ethic and ‘determination’ be the principal that will drive us to perform our mission and national duty in the best way possible.
