Recently, the Dubai Health Authority announced that Dubai will host a regional medical tourism conference in early 2011. In case you didn’t know, Dubai Health Authority was the diamond sponsor at the 2010 Global Health Care and Medical Tourism Conference in Los Angeles. And just how much does it cost to be the diamond sponsor? $100,000… for a 3 day event. This is why medical tourism is drawing 15 million Americans out of the country each year. If you are looking for a way to attract medical tourists (both domestic and foreign), check out www.medibid.com. Or you could spend the $100,000 and sponsor next year’s event. It’s up to you.
I was there when this picture was taken, standing off to the right. I was talking to a facility coordinator when they closed the hall for this picture. You can’t see me, but it was funny to see this picture in the news online knowing I was standing right there. Out spreading the MediBid word.
The Dubai Health Authority recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Medical Tourism Association at the World Medical Tourism and Global Health Congress which took place in Los Angeles from 22nd to 24th September 2010.
The Dubai HealthAuthority was the DiamondSponsor in the Congress. With the signing of this MoU, both parties will work towards further strengthening the medical tourism sector in the Emirate of Dubai.
Dubai is already known to be one of the top tourism destinations in the world and the DHA is further building its healthcare capabilities, policies and regulations to ensure that Dubai enjoys the same position as a healthcare destination.
Dubai will host the prestigious regional Medical Tourism Congress, which will take place in February 2011 and will be held for the first time in the Middle East.
At the conference the DHA and the private sector will represent their centres of excellence in their related fields such as diabetes management, rehabilitation facilities, surgery etc. The conference will be a platform representing Dubai’s healthcare tourism strengths to the global medial tourism industry.
His Excellency Qadhi Saeed Al Murooshid, Director General of the DHA, said, “In recent years, Dubai has seen a phenomenal growth in the health sector and this has been possible because of the vision of our leader, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, who has given significant importance to the health sector in the Dubai strategic plan 2015.”
