BioSpectrum (Asia) - - Regulatory News -

A na­tional plan was ap­proved dur­ing a Cab­i­net meet­ing re­cently, to de­velop med­i­cal re­search cen­tres across the UAE. The Cab­i­net also ap­proved the na­tional plan’s strat­egy to es­tab­lish re­search and de­vel­op­ment cen­tres in the health-care sec­tor in co­op­er­a­tion with aca­demic in­sti­tu­tions. The Cab­i­net meet­ing was chaired by Shaikh Mo­ham­mad Bin Rashid Al Mak­toum, Vi­cePres­i­dent and Prime Min­is­ter of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The strat­egy’s ob­jec­tives are to unify ef­forts across the UAE to set up med­i­cal re­search cen­tres that can con­trib­ute to de­vel­op­ing, sup­port­ing and dis­tribut­ing sci­en­tific stud­ies to bet­ter un­der­stand the med­i­cal chal­lenges fac­ing the com­mu­nity, as well as look­ing into so­lu­tions for the afore­men­tioned chal­lenges through re­search and epi­demi­o­log­i­cal stud­ies. Through the med­i­cal re­search cen­tres, the Cab­i­net is seek­ing for a clearer un­der­stand­ing and in-depth re­search re­gard­ing health chal­lenges per­tain­ing to the so­ci­ety, and the health-care ser­vices that will be re­quired dur­ing the com­ing decades.
