Quotes

"In the UAE, health providers, policy makers and stakeholders are working together to improve the nation's health and safety. A health index can potentially be an indicator to correct unhealthy behaviours and assess programmes that need improvement. Whether the goal is to prevent illnesses or to reduce absenteeism in schools, there should be an evaluation tool. In this the NMC Health Index is well placed" Mr Abedin added
"We are bullish on the prospects of the healthcare industry in the region. On the demand side, rising affordability, lifestyle related diseases, the treatment of which is both costlier and lengthier, and increasing insurance penetration will ensure vigorous rise in healthcare spending in the GCC. On the supply side, the government is taking measures to ensure that the infrastructure is equipped to handle the increasing demand. The government is considering PPP models to bring efficiency while reducing financing burden, along with other measures such as e-health and m-health tools. There is dearth of highly qualified medical practitioners in the region and hence influx of foreign practitioners will continue to remain a trend. Private sector has limited presence in the industry at present but will play an important role in the time to come" , says Sanjay Vig, Managing Director, Alpen Capital
"With record participation from public and private sector entities this year, Careers UAE 2014 offers a tremendous breadth of professional career opportunities for UAE nationals all under one roof."
Dr. Abdulkareem Al Olama, CEO of Al Jalila Foundation, commented: "Providing talented local scientists with the opportunity to study at world-class institutions and contribute towards global scientific research will help to establish the UAE as a medical research centre on par with the rest of the world. We extend our gratitude to our generous donors, who are not only changing the lives of gifted individuals, but will help to better the health of the nation for years to come."
