DHA Offers Free Health Treatment for People with Limited Means

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) recently launched the “Ataa’ wa Saa’da” initiative, which translates to “Giving and Happiness.” The benevolent project seeks to provide free health treatment for patients who have limited means.

The project is in line with the UAE’s “Year of Giving” initiative, through the leadership of the President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and the Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

The director added that the number of facilities offering free treatment could increase to 26, since more health facilities are likely to join the “Giving and Happiness” project. This clearly shows the eagerness of the private sector in joining the initiative.

Meanwhile, the Head of the Community and Humanitarian Services Office at DHA, Salim Mohammad bin Lahij, explained that the project targets specific patients. In relation to this, they have come up with criteria to identify those who are eligible to receive free treatment.
