Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Dubai Health Authority conduct telemedicine workshop

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 25 December, 2021: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Dubai Health Authority conducted a virtual training workshop with the Ministry’s Emirati employees in the UAE embassies and consulates across various countries of the world, in order to introduce the Doctor for Every Citizen telemedicine consultation service.

The workshop is in line with the recent MoU signed by the two entities aimed at offering healthcare programs to Emirati citizens abroad and to the ministry’s staff by providing tele-consultations as part of the authority’s Doctor for Every Citizen service.

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) launched the 24/7 Doctor for Every Citizen initiative in 2019 to achieve Article Five of the Fifty-Year Charter, in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. 
Doctors were also trained in sign language to provide this service to People of determination and this feature on the DHA app has also undergone regular updates to make it more user-friendly. 

His Excellency Abdulla Mohamed Al Blooki, Assistant Undersecretary for Support Services Affairs Sector at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said the telemedicine initiative is an important addition to the overall care programs provided by the Ministry to its employees in UAE embassies and consulates around the world.

H.E. Al Blooki confirmed that the service will encourage employees in UAE embassies and consulates around the world to get regular periodic medical reviews and follow-up on their medical conditions. He added that the use of smart technology has greatly increased convenience and ensures healthcare follow-up at the same time.

Dr. Manal Taryam, CEO of Primary Health Care Sector at the Dubai Health Authority, said that the authority is proud of its partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

She said the service was particularly beneficial during the peak of COVID-19 pandemic as it provided the population with virtual medical consultations, which helped minimize the need for hospitalizations and provided customers with high-quality medical consultations in the comfort of their homes.

 She added that the success of this initiative led the authority to further expand its scope and add more specialties. She added that DHA is proud to provide this service to employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, who are based in UAE embassies and consulates outside the country.

She added that DHA is keen to further build on its digital health capabilities in order to provide the highest quality of accessible and convenient patient-centered care.
