DUBAI: Global phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal irm LEO Pharma, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Dubai Health Author­ity (DHA), suc­cess­fully set a Guin­ness World Record for the world’s “largest aware­ness rib­bon” yes­ter­day.

Held at the Dubai Polo & Eques­trian Club, in the es­teemed pres­ence of Dr An­war Al Ham­madi, Head of Der­ma­tol­ogy Depart­ment, Dubai Health Author­ity, the at­tempt was made to raise aware­ness and pro­vide knowl­edge about pso­ri­a­sis.

To achieve this record, a large fab­ric was cus­tom made to match the colours of the aware­ness rib­bon – orange and or­chid, and in terms of di­men­sions, the re­quire­ment was for the rib­bon to be over 1,000 m2. LEO Pharma achieved the Guin­ness World Record by build­ing an aware­ness rib­bon that mea­sured 1,463.85 m2, for the world’s “largest aware­ness rib­bon”.
