Dubai Government Workshop successfully holds workshop to support DHA’s move to increase awareness about viral hepatitis
Dubai Government Workshop (DGW) successfully organized an educational seminar aimed at increasing awareness about viral hepatitis. The move is part of DGW’s continuing support for Dubai Health Authority’s (DHA) ‘Dubai without C’ campaign, which looks towards making the public more aware about the disease and how to ultimately eliminate it in the UAE. The initiative falls in line with the set goals and objectives of National Agenda 2021, which also includes efforts to create a world class comprehensive health care system. It also reflects DGW`s deep sense of responsibility towards society and humanity through providing ultimate support to all national initiatives that aim at serving the Emirates society.
Fahad Ahmed Al-Raeesi, Deputy CEO of Dubai Government Workshop, said, “This workshop that we conducted demonstrates our deep-rooted and firmly established commitment to protect the community and humanity as a whole. It also represents a strong push in the unified efforts to increase awareness about viral hepatitis–its early diagnosis, treatment and learning about the risks of not getting proper treatment. This move is in accordance with the 50-year strategy and in compliance with the UAE wise leadership’s directives to position the country as a premier provider of the most unique and best quality of life in the world.”
He added that the DGW is proud to be part of the ‘Dubai without a C’ campaign–reflecting a key step forward in the move to work as one team directed to achieve happiness, prosperity and growth. The responsibility falls on all segments of society and all sectors in order to achieve the goals of the national agenda 2021.
“We value the fruitful efforts and cooperation between all concerned parties to make this campaign a huge success. In fact, we comment DHA’s initiative, under the UAE’s wise leadership, to spare no effort to make our people the happiest on earth and achieve welfare of the society. We remain confident that this campaign, which tackles an important health issue, is addressed properly. Rest assured that we are committed to increase awareness to our staff as their safety is our priority. We strongly believe in our role and responsibility towards society as well as promoting the preventive aspect to defeat the disease. This is only achievable by educating our people of the importance of early diagnosis and treatment and learn about the dangers of not getting treated,” concluded Al-Raeesi.
The workshop included conducting medical examinations and educational lectures on the causes and symptoms of the disease and ways to prevent it, in addition to distributing educational brochures and pamphlets to embody the concerted joint efforts between the various government departments and institutions in Dubai , labor groups and all Dubai residents and citizens.
