New Law to Improve People’s Quality of Life Soon to be Imposed in UAE

The UAE Cabinet, chaired by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, recently adopted the National Strategy for Wellbeing 2031 during its meeting at the Presidential Palace in Abu Dhabi, as shared in a report by WAM.

The National Strategy for Wellbeing 2031 aims to make the UAE a world leader in quality of life through a number of strategic objectives and programmes. The strategy programme also aims to idealize an integrated concept of wellbeing, thus supporting the vision of the UAE Vision 2021 and the UAE Centennial 2071.

What is the UAE National Strategy of Wellbeing?

The strategy is founded on a national framework which consists of three main levels – individuals, society and the country. The strategy has 14 components and nine strategic objectives, which include enhancing people’s wellbeing by promoting healthy and active lifestyles, promoting good mental health and adopting positive thinking.

The strategy includes 90 complementary initiatives targeting more than 40 priority areas as determined by the national government.

Among these initiatives is the development of the first ‘National Wellbeing Observatory’ to support the policymaking process. Through this, authorities will be able to monitor a number of indicators of wellbeing in the UAE, submit regular reports to the UAE Cabinet, propose training programmes for government employees, and open the Academy of Well-being Future Generations, in addition to the formation of a National Wellbeing Council to manage and organize the national strategy.

Aside from this the UAE Cabinet also approved a federal law governing genetically modified products. Additionally, executive regulations on the Medical Liability Law were also approved. This law inherently deals with medical errors and the mechanism of complaint submissions in the UAE health sector, among others.
