The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) has recently signed an MoU with the Emirates Medical Association in the UAE to further the development and training of its healthcare workers.

The agreement follows on from the MOHAP’s decision to recently sign an MoU with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to further develop its paediatric care services in the region.

The partnership is part of the Ministry's strategy to ensure that training services provided meet international standards in terms of quality and efficiency, and meet the organisation’s need to have a strong institutional capacity through the implementation of professional development programs, seminars, campaigns, workshops and conferences on local health problems and solutions.

This will therefore improve professional performance and skills of its medical staff, enrich scientific knowledge, and enhance laboratory and clinical practices.
