Throughout its history, the UAE has overcome many challenges and has emerged as a world-class leader in many fields because of its ability to adapt and grow. In recent years, the number of people relocating to the UAE has significantly increased, as individuals from all over the globe search for various jobs and benefits available in the UAE.
In the healthcare sector, there are more public hospitals and clinics than ever before, and the number of private hospitals and clinics has also increased in recent years due to this population growth.
The Dubai government is very dedicated to providing its citizens with the best medical services and facilities. The Dubai government established the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) to ensure the delivery of quality healthcare services in the country. The DHA aims to promote the development of the healthcare sector and to establish standards for approving clinics and accrediting other healthcare facilities under its guidelines.
