At a recent medical meeting held in UAE H.E. Professor Dr. Maha Taysir Barakat, Director General of HAAD said:

"With the significance of non-communicable diseases in our society, we consider diabetes a top priority. HAAD anticipates a growth in demand for general medical services linked to lifestyle-related diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, with larger volume increases in outpatient and inpatient settings. Therefore, it is important for the medical community to convene to discuss trends, optimal treatment standards and realistic means of prevention and mitigation of complications.”
