At the same time, regional governments are working towards developing a robust infrastructure and implementing policies to address healthcare concerns towards a better health for their nations.”
“The UAE, in particular, is a fast developing center of world class healthcare facilities, backed by progressive reforms and integrated systems of care, ensuring a business environment for the world’s best brands to grow and establish themselves.
