UAE unifies MOH, DHA, HAAD licenses
Healthcare regulating bodies in United Arab Emirates (UAE) have unified their licenses, making it possible for doctors, nurses and health professionals to practice anywhere in the Emirates.
On Wednesday, The Ministry of Health (MoH), Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and Health Authority of Abu Dhabi (HAAD) signed an agreement for the unification of licenses for medical practitioners in the country.
“It’s a new step on the right path in order to unify the regulations, laws and procedures governing this noble human profession,” said Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum.
The agreement is seen to enhance the employment chances of health practitioners in the country. This would standardize the aspects of medical services in public and private sectors, and would ensure a single format for hiring, and salaries for each job.
“This is a good step and now a plenty of medical professionals will be available in the market as they can practice in any emirate with any of MoH/DHA/HAAD licenses,” investors told Arab News.
Sheikh Mohammed stressed that the UAE will always remain an oasis of cultural harmony and human generosity.
Surely, this will be a good news to Filipino nurses and other health professionals applying in the Emirates.
