Medical conference to spotlight best global practice

Forum to focus on medical care for People of Determination

Dubai, September 4, 2023

The major achievements of the UAE in medical care and rehabilitation, especially those related to People of Determination, will be highlighted at a medical conference to be held between October 9 and 11 as part of the AccessAbilities Expo.

Specialists in the medical and pharmaceutical industries, nurses, and nutritionists will participate in the conference, which is organised by AccessAbilities Expo and the MENA Organization for Rare Diseases.

It aims to enhance awareness of the medical needs of People of Determination and healthcare appropriate to their needs. It is to highlight the best international practices in this field, social and rehabilitation services, clinical research, and future treatments, in addition to shedding light on rare diseases endemic in the Middle East.

The conference will provide a platform that brings together top doctors and health experts to discuss the medical challenges and health problems faced by more than 50 million people with special needs living in the Middle East. It also aims to generate awareness about diseases and genetic disorders that lead to disability.

The conference provides the participants with the opportunity to obtain CME (Continuing Medical Education) credits, in addition to learning about the latest methods of health care and rehabilitation and strengthening their network of relations with the community of People of Determination.

The conference will also discuss the latest clinical research aimed at facilitating access to accurate diagnoses and access to innovative treatment methods.

Ghassan Suleiman, CEO of AccessAbilites Expo, said: “The organisation of this conference comes as a commitment from us to create a specialized platform to educate the community of People of Determination and medical care providers, with the aim of sharing minds and exchanging visions on the best methods of medical care and searching for appropriate solutions   to keep pace   with the challenges   facing this segment.”

The Middle East region is one of the geographical regions in the world that has the highest prevalence rates of rare diseases, especially hereditary diseases. The Centre for Arab Genomic Studies in Dubai estimates that about 2.8 million patients suffer from 2,297 rare diseases across the Arab countries, which costs government and private sector budgets billions of dirhams annually to improve their lives.

Professor Ayman El-Hattab, Founder and President of the MENA Organization for Rare Diseases, said a large percentage of People of Determination suffer from rare genetic diseases. Because of the rarity of these diseases, affected individuals may have difficulty obtaining appropriate healthcare.

“From here, this conference comes to provide the latest information related to health and rehabilitation care to healthcare providers to increase the level of knowledge to raise the level of care provided to People of Determination and rare diseases. In addition, the meeting will discuss research experiences and their role in improving diagnosis and treatment for rare diseases.” - TradeArabia News Service
